CAITLYN FAGAN, 33

CEO + CO-FOUNDER, ZENMAN AND BIGFOOT WEB

Sure, her operational skill set is strong. But it’s Caitlyn Fagan’s passion for shaping culture that sets her apart, both at Zenman and its sister company, Bigfoot Web.

“Caitlyn runs Zenman and Bigfoot on the principle that life at work should be a place where the team is growing and achieving both professional and personal goals, while also liking who we work with and having some fun along the way,” boss and business partner Keith Roberts says. Fagan has instituted such perks as unlimited vacation, company-subsidized insurance, 16 weeks of paid leave for both new moms and dads and free-lunch Fridays.

Fagan is former board president for Kids In Need of Dentistry, a volunteer for Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Colorado and co-founder of an event, Snow Day, which has generated more than $250,000 for the Barth Hotel, a charity that serves Denver’s underserved elderly. “Caitlyn’s philanthropic passion and commitment is one of the first things we talked about when I met her,” Roberts says. “(She) often says there are three ways in which anyone can give back – we can give of our time, our talent or our treasure – and she gives all three.”
