Sam Galeotos is a native of Cheyenne and a downtown property owner. Galeotos spent a lot of time in downtown Cheyenne as a child frequenting his grandparents businesses. He currently serves as the Executive Chairman of Green House Data Corporation, and has held past leadership positions as the CEO of Galileo International, CEO/COO & President of Cheap Tickets Inc., and Co-CEO of Worldspan Travel Information Systems. He is committed to seeing downtown Cheyenne become the thriving area he experienced as a youth.
David has lived in Cheyenne since 1979 and has been involved in the DDA since the 1980’s, primarily through the Design Committee. He has operated his own landscape architectural design firm since 1983, and has been involved in many significant community improvement projects in Cheyenne and the downtown area.
Dave is a civic minded business development guy, who believes business/industry has a responsibility to economic and community development. With work experiences in both the private and public sectors, he believes the strength of any company is always found in the people. His primary focus is on improving methods of client discovery research, competitive review, strategic and tactical planning, media planning and purchasing, and daily account and relationship management.
Ms. West, P.M.P., A.S.I.D. is a prominent project manager, general contractor, and designer with over 25 years of experience on a wide range of projects for both new facilities and the renovation and expansion of existing facilities.
Supervising a staff of 3-9 members with an annual operating budget of $500,000, Ms. West successfully managed clients’ projects ranging in budgets up to $27 million, until starting semi-retirement in 2006.
Relocating to Cheyenne in 2011, Ms. West viewed downtown Cheyenne as the place where the history and future of the city resides. Her desire to see the capitol city’s downtown environment alive with residents, business, and cultural life has led her to serve on the DDA board.
When I first moved to downtown Cheyenne in 2009, I saw, and continue to see, the tremendous potential of Cheyenne to grow into a year-round destination for visitors and an exciting focal point for its residents. Through my tenure on the DDA, I hope to facilitate efforts to attract diverse businesses, improve infrastructure and create a safe and stimulating environment for all.
