President and CEO, Craig Lindgren, has been in the trade show and exhibit business since 1983. Born in Denver, Colorado, Craig chose the company name based on his love for the mountains, a healthy lifestyle, and the Boulder area. Craig’s grandfather owned his own construction business and his talented wife, besides taking care of business finances, their home and children, hand-built a rock chimney and fireplace at their mountain home. Designing and building definitely runs in the family.
Craig introduced to this business while looking for a graphic design job just out of college. Detailed illustration being his passion, Craig remembers winning design awards as far back as 2nd grade. As a teen he designed and built his first piece of furniture, a chair. Commercial art classes in high school introduced him to hand lettering with a brush. Working at a sign shop during one summer in college provided on-the-job training in custom signage and hand painted commercial signs. It was only natural that he landed his first job as an exhibit designer and illustrator. One unique characteristic he possess is being creative and business minded at the same time. After working as an exhibit designer for two different companies, the next step was taking on an Account Executive position. Still overseeing client exhibit design and graphics, Craig managed client accounts including fortune 500 companies for several years.
In September 1997, Craig decided to take things to the next level and incorporated Boulder Exhibits. His passion for design and client satisfaction keeps Boulder Exhibits on the straight path with continued growth and success.
