Andrew Ritz

Chief Accounting and Compliance Officer

Andrew has been with the Foundation from the very beginning, and that has proved fortunate for everyone — Andrew, the Foundation and all Coloradans.

For Andrew, it has been an honor to witness firsthand the tremendous change in size and scope of the Foundation since 1995. Trained as a CPA, Andrew has a long career in the health care industry, which brought him our way. In his current role as chief accounting and compliance officer, he’s responsible for accounting, financial reporting, budgeting, taxes, compliance and risk management. He also collaborates with other departments and developed and implemented the cash flow cross-functional work groups.

As a native of rural Colorado, Andrew takes personal pride in helping residents of this state enjoy access to top-notch health care and live healthier lives.

He leads a healthy life filled with long walks along the High Line Canal and quality time with his wife. Andrew also loves exploring the hidden corners of Colorado, especially Great Sand Dunes National Park. Closer to home, he enjoys Broncos football and occasional splurges eating his mom’s delicious Sicilian food. As he says, “Now, that’s living!”
