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 13 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 Coloardo company and loves that his branding includes a .CO web address. He likes to say, it stands for .Colorado! But don’t let that pigeon hole your view of him. He likes the beach and water just as much as the mountains. He also says, don’t pigeon hole his nonprofit background. His experience in the nonprofit industry is just a comprehensive as having worked with a top five consulting house. During Andrew’s career he supported and witnessed Food Bank of the Rockies distribution grow from 12.5 million pounds to 58 million pounds of food and essentials a year. That is what he defines as compound growth in an industry.
He has a proven track record for success in management and operations, including nonprofit and business development, business analytics, and event management. He received a Master of Science in Decision Sciences-Business Analytics from the University of Colorado, Denver. Andrew is most proud of serving Hunger Free Colorado’s executive leadership group Full Pantries, Full Lives that helped create the Colorado Food Pantry Network, and serving as President of the Applewood Business Association. He is also passionate about healthy living and play. His favorite activities include swimming, mountaineering and skiing. Free the heel, Free your mind. Above all, Andrew emphasizes compassion. It’s a human thing.
