Executive Board

Mick Daly – President

Mick loves soccer, running, hiking, biking and investing in his 7 grand-kids.

In his former life, Mick was a Systems Engineer and Technical Support Manager with IBM in England for 20 years. After 3 years in Dallas, Texas on a 3-year IBM assignment, Mick, Jenny and their two sons decided to stay in the US, and became ‘home-preneurs’ in 1990.

In 1997, they sold their house in Dallas, bought an RV and spent the next 4 years traveling all over the US. After choosing Colorado and building a log home near Glenwood Springs, they moved to a new home in Eagle in 2009.

Now Mick and Jenny love life in Eagle, living close to their sons, daughters-in-law and 7 grandchildren. They run their international Juice Plus+ business from their home in Eagle Ranch (built by their sons), and travel with their business as well as for fun. When at home they attend Eagle Bible Church.

Mick says “In Eagle now, I am living a much bigger WHY than I ever dreamed possible; so I am as retired as I ever plan to be!”

Thomas Boyken – Director

 

Born in Indiana, Thomas moved to Texas at the age of 8, where he grew up. He attended and graduated from Texas State University–San Marcos with a Finance degree from the accredited business school.

Thomas’ first job out of school was working with a start up in Austin. Over his four years there, he and the owners took it from a 3-person company working from home, to a 15-person company manufacturing in China and shipping all over the world. Thomas was hooked on small business, the autonomy it afforded and the incredibly rewarding experience of knowing you’re contributing every day.

Wanting more of a typical “career” job, Thomas accepted a position with a fortune 500 company that relocated him to Grand Junction, CO. Visiting Colorado in the summers as a kid, Thomas always knew he’d live there one day, and it had finally become a reality.

Spending a summer in Grand Junction, and realizing big corporations weren’t for him, the mountains called, and Thomas couldn’t resist. Moving to Vail on Halloween day 2010, he has lived in the Vail Valley ever since. Starting in East Vail, he’s made the typical westward migration and now owns a home in Eagle. The perfect blend of winter and summer, he loves his time in Eagle, skiing in the winters and golfing in the summers. Giving back to his local community, Thomas has served as a Board of Director on the Eagle Chamber of Commerce since 2017.

While learning several different industries, there’s one constant that stays true – his passion working in and with small businesses. With over 15 years of business experience, Thomas has always been the right-hand man to the CEO. As such, he has learned all facets of business and how to help them be efficient and profitable.

Thomas has always been attracted to tech in some form. Taking this to another level, he took a job with a local tech company as their Sales and Marketing Manager, doubling as Account Manager for all clients. For four years, Thomas dove in head first, learning a much about business IT as he could. Having this new skillset and knowing the local marketing intimately, Thomas saw a need and took the opportunity. Launching Forward Tech Solutions, LLC in 2018, this path will allow him to use his skills, talents, and expertise to help even more small business owners. Thomas decided to focus on that department where he feels small businesses need the most help. By taking his businesses minded, financial approach, he believes IT can be a valuable asset that helps companies achieve their desired success.
