Doniece Welch, vice president and general manager
Talk to her about: Advertising opportunities, event sponsorships, publication and online advertising
Doniece has held numerous positions with REAL Trends since she joined Steve Murray in his basement office in 1993. She is currently the vice president and general manager. Her primary motivation at REAL Trends is to provide value to clients. She is passionate about meeting and exceeding clients’ expectations. Over the years, she’s contributed to the growth of the company and is honored to be surrounded by such an outstanding, talented and fun team.
An avid reader, Doniece devours up to four diverse books a week. One of her favorites is “QB VII” by Leon Uris. She can also be found enjoying beautiful Colorado with her family, which includes her husband, two married daughters and their spouses, and five awesome (and busy!) young grandsons. Doniece’s favorite motto is “This too shall pass,” probably because of her strong faith and the support of her close family.
Doniece studied business administration at the University of Oklahoma and the University of Denver. Prior to joining REAL Trends, she served with three law enforcement agencies, including the Santa Barbara (California) County Sheriff’s Office, the Sedgewick County (Kansas) Sheriff’s Office, the Oak Ridge (Tennessee) Police Department, and with the University of Denver Student Health Service as Assistant Director.
