Remembering Ed Morlan

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Ed Morlan, Pagosa Verde Director. Ed died on Tuesday, November 15, 2016.

After 27 years of leading Colorado’s Region 9 Economic Development District, Ed had celebrated his retirement. Upon the announcement of Ed’s leaving Region 9, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper declared July 28 to be Ed Morlan Day. Ed was well-known for the sage advice he gave numerous start-ups and established businesses in southwest Colorado, including Pagosa Verde. His early belief in our vision and his personal support of Pagosa Verde enabled our emergence as a Colorado company.

Ed’s commitment to Pagosa Verde and geothermal development in Colorado made a significant difference. Jerry, the Pagosa Verde Board of Directors and the Pagosa Verde staff greatly miss Ed’s friendship, guidance and collaboration.
