GWC’s core values align with Quarterly Forum, which has a seventeen-year history of providing a place for emerging executives to dream more, learn more, do more and become more. In 2015, it was decided then to partner up and make an even bigger impact on the Denver community. 


Eric Hopfenbeck is the Interim Executive Director of Quarterly Forum (QF). As Interim ED, Eric manages strategic oversight of the organization, manages day-to-day operations, and represents QF at events across Colorado.  He joined QF in 2017 as Program Director, managing the Colorado Governors Fellowship Program, the McKinsey Academy @ QF Fellowship program, and supporting the Social Enterprise Fellowship at the Barton Institute for Philanthropy & Social Enterprise at the University of Denver. 

Eric joined QF from the National Cybersecurity Center (NCC) based in Colorado Springs, where he served as Chief of Staff. Eric supported organizational stand-up activities, conducted community outreach presentations, aided in strategic planning, and established early administration of the organization. Eric began working for the NCC in April 2016 while completing a Fellowship as a Program Associate (Fellow) at El Pomar Foundation.
