With a ubiquitous presence in the Castle Rock market, owners Sandy and Mark Michael are a ﬁxture in the town and have made a las+ng impression on the business community. Mark is originally from the northern Denver suburbs, but aCended the University of Southern California’s pres+gious ﬁlm school. “I was born and raised in Colorado, and we knew ul+mately we’d be raising our family here. It feels good to think that what we do is important to the businesses in the area, Mark Michael and the chamber is extremely Chairman of the Board important to maintaining such a thriving Versa0lity Crea0ve Group community. Business owners put their savings, sweat, blood and tears into their businesses and we support them anyway we can.” Mark met Sandy while they were both working in Hollywood; their combined 25 years of TV experience has companies like NBC Sports, The Cooking Channel, A&E and more tapping VCG for major projects.

Mark's energy, youth and professionalism all help to inform his unique problem-solving approach and will be a huge asset to the Castle Rock Chamber as it moves forward into the future.” Castle Rock, as one of the country’s fasted growing ci+es, has experienced a lot of change over the past few years, and has become a hot-spot for businesses of all types and a prime des+na+on for families. As the town con+nues this upward trend, the chamber’s role has become even more important. Being elected chair at this exci+ng +me is deﬁnitely a nod to the conﬁdence the business community has in Mark and Versa+lity, but he will be accompanied by a talented board of directors. “We know that Mark and his board of directors will help drive this awareness and make it known that Castle Rock is not only a top place to live and raise a family, but also the best place to locate your business. Knowing that the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce helps the en+re community in developing a talented work force is cri+cal to any company looking for their business home. It’s not only an exci+ng +me to live in Castle Rock, it’s also a very exci+ng place to work as well!” said Greenberg.
