Stacey Voigt, Executive Director
Stacey Voigt, joined Delta County Economic Development in winter 2017. She moved to Colorado in 2001 to Copper Mountain to ski for one season. Two boys and a husband later, she is still here.
During her time in Colorado, Stacey has lived and worked in Summit County, Fairplay in Park County, Denver and Loveland. She can’t help but feel awed and privileged to be asked to be a part of Delta County, especially at such a pivotal time for the county. As an economic planner that has focused on revitalization and urban renewal, she is impressed with forward thinking and the effort that is happening here in the county.
Stacey has more than eight years of experience developing and coordinating local, state, tribal and national public and community projects and programs. She has experience working with community and economic development, public/private partnerships, renewal authorities and tax increment financing, grant writing, and business retention and expansion, as well as administering nonprofit organizations. She has a Master’s Degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Colorado, Denver as well as an undergraduate degree in Design Studies from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
Stacey has a career in a variety of roles and industries, mostly in small companies where everyone must roll up their sleeves and pitch in to whatever needs to be done. She is not only used to wearing many hats—it’s a bit of a running joke of “what hasn’t she done?”
Stacey grew up on a small farm in Northwest Washington State riding horses and participating in 4-H, competing in barrel racing and goat tying. She also loves to grow vegetables and has been known to convert her whole yard to gardens. She and her husband, Travis, and their two school-aged boys are a community-involved family with the boys playing baseball, Travis coaching baseball and helping the school PTO, and the entire family volunteering and enjoying community events. The family also loves to ski and snowboard and play board and card games. They have a cat named Pants, a wildcat rescue who now sleeps with the boys every night.

Paul Stockwell, Program Coordinator
Paul joined DCED as Program Coordinator in May 2015. After years of working and living in the Front Range, he and his wife recently moved to Olathe in order to return to a smaller town setting that would offer high quality recreation. They currently have horses, goats, chickens, ducks, dogs and cats that all enjoy the country life and they look forward to having a large garden along with harvest from their fruit trees. Prior to moving to Olathe, Paul was employed by Omni Financial, a Tax Resolution Company based out of Broomfield, where he worked with thousands of businesses and individuals on many very complex tax issues, not only saving client’s money, but providing piece of mind through tough negotiations. Originally from Illinois, Paul attended Western Illinois University in Macomb, IL, and earned a BA in Economics. After college he worked with Western Illinois Works (WIA) and Spoon River College to promote Workforce Education as well as to develop necessary training for area businesses. These positions required cooperation with many local organizations and government entities which will be very helpful in establishing similar relationships in Delta County. "I am excited about this opportunity and look forward to the challenges of this new position as well as getting to know the communities within Delta County. I feel like Delta County has a lot to offer and was a major reason why my wife and I decided to move to the area."
Please feel free to contact Paul at 970.874.4992, email@example.com, or stop by the DCED office at 540 Main Street, Suite 107, Delta CO 81416.
