A MESSAGE FROM GAIL KLAPPER
MEMBER/PRESIDENT 

We are very privileged to live in Colorado and members of the Colorado Forum care deeply about the future of our State.  The Colorado Forum was formed in 1978 with a diverse membership of business and civic leaders who work to achieve good public policy results for Colorado. The Forum has a long history of positive engagement on issues of importance to the State and because the Forum has no term limits, our consistency of purpose allows us to address issues for as long as it takes to make important change happen. More >

Alice Jackson

President, Xcel Energy - Colorado

Alice K. Jackson is President, Xcel Energy – Colorado where she leads the Operating Company team for Public Service Company of Colorado.  Since joining Xcel Energy in 2011, Ms. Jackson has held various positions of increasing responsibility.  Most recently Ms. Jackson was Vice President of Strategic Revenue Initiatives, where she built a team to generate new revenues through exploring and integrating new technologies, activities, and economic development initiatives in addition to looking at new options for Xcel Energy’s unregulated businesses.  Prior to her corporate strategic role, Alice held the lead regulatory position with Southwestern Public Service Company (SPS) in Texas and then with Public Service Company of Colorado (PSCo).

Before her time with Xcel Energy, Alice spent close to 10 years with Occidental Petroleum Corporation (Oxy) managing the energy needs of this large consumer across the country. Through her involvement in the federal and state electric markets, multiple rate cases, and interaction with customers large and small, Alice developed a unique respect for utilities and their contributions to society.

Because having a full-time career, being married to her high school sweetheart and having four sons is not enough of an adventure in life, Alice recently took on the challenge of advancing her business acumen.  In 2017 Alice completed the Program for Leadership Development at Harvard University.  Before her professional experience, Alice obtained a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in Management Information Systems from Texas A&M University.

Alice is a trustee for Colorado Succeeds, a board member for the American Red Cross Colorado/Wyoming chapter and a Women’s Business Alliance member for Mile High United Way.
