“So many of the skills I’ve relied on in my career in accounting and finance were actually developed through my experience playing in bands and recording,” said Dave Maddocks. “Music taught me to collaborate, effectively communicate and stay true to myself.”

The past six years have been a song of success and growth for Maddocks at Brinkman Construction. He joined the company with three staff members reporting to him and now oversees three high-performing departments. He leads the financial vision and strategy for the nearly $200 million company, as well as initiatives that benefit its employees including transition to 100% employee ownership and leading the strategy for Brinkman’s retirement plan and profit-sharing benefits.

A Magna Cum Laude graduate of the University of Northern Colorado’s Monfort School of Business with bachelor’s and master’s degrees, Maddocks is an active member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Construction Financial Management Association. He graduated from the Leadership Fort Collins Class of 2020.

As the leader of Brinkman’s payroll and benefits, IT and accounting teams, Maddocks has pressed leadership to make strategic changes focused on enhancing company culture and taken an active role in removing the boundaries between the operations and finance teams.

He and his wife support several organizations that address human trafficking, access to clean water and food insecurity, both in Fort Collins and abroad. He has volunteered with many local nonprofits including Volunteers of America, United Way of Larimer County and Food Bank of Larimer County.
