As we gear up for CNBC x Boardroom’s Game Plan conference this summer, let’s learn more about one of the event’s featured speakers, Linda Alvarado.

In a first-of-its-kind partnership, CNBC, First in Business Worldwide, and Boardroom, Kevin Durant and Rich Kleiman’s premier media brand covering the business of sports, music, and entertainment, are teaming up to produce CNBC x Boardroom Game Plan, an all-new, high-powered event taking place on July 25 in Los Angeles. Today, we’re highlighting featured speaker Linda Alvarado, co-owner of the Colorado Rockies. Click here to view the full list of CNBC x Boardroom Game Plan speakers.

Linda Alvarado is no stranger to busting through glass ceilings… or building them. A construction executive for nearly 50 years, Alvarado has modeled herself as a true trailblazer for women and Hispanic Americans in the boardroom.

For over three decades, Alvarado has helped to craft the blueprint for professional sports in Denver. A co-owner of Major League Baseball’s Colorado Rockies since 1991, her company oversaw the construction of both the Denver Broncos’ Mile High Stadium — currently known as Empower Field at Mile High — and the 2.2 million square foot Colorado Convention in downtown Denver.

However, that’s not all — Alvarado is a serial entrepreneur. In addition to continuing to serve as President and CEO of Alvarado Construction, Inc., she serves as president of restaurant holding company Palo Alto, Inc., which runs multiple Yum! Brands restaurants across Colorado, California, and New Mexico. She has also served on a number of Fortune 500 boards of directors, including 3M and PepsiCo.
