Morrison Holdings is an established holdings company that maintains a diverse portfolio in order to bring value to our clients, investors and communities. We believe our approach – Creative Community Development, Operations Analysis, and Philanthropic Impact – delivers the greatest aggregation of impact opportunities to capitalize earning strategies and build community.
Morrison Holdings’ story began in the early 2000’s. In 2003 our Founder & CEO, Andrew Coonan, volunteered with Food Bank of the Rockies and immediately understood there was need in his hometown of Golden, Colorado. Mr. Coonan’s ethos was further shaped by the philosophy of community wealth from Billy Shore, CEO of Share Our Strength. Ultimately, Andrew believed in this vehicle to create real community wealth through privately held ventures combined with community initiatives. Mr. Coonan dubbed the phrase Creative Community Development to guide his business and philanthropic activities. He served the nonprofit industry of Colorado for more than 15 years, while earning a M.S. in Decision Sciences from University of Colorado-Denver in 2014. As a dynamic part of Morrison Holdings portfolio, Andrew has also partnered and supported special events and festivals in the Colorado music industry since 2007. Morrison Holdings began offering operations management consulting to small businesses in 2016 recognizing a need for small business owners to understand the impact of their decision strategies. Today, Morrison Holdings’ vision is stronger than ever creating impact in private ventures and events, supporting small business needs, and giving back to our communities.
Andrew Coonan is a native of Golden, Colorado. In Morrison Holdings, he is proud to own a Colorado company and loves that his branding includes a .CO web address. He will tell you it stands for .Colorado!
Andrew is proud alum of St. Mary’s College of Maryland and the University of Colorado, Denver with a Master of Science in Decision Sciences-Business Analytics.
