"Tim McCune is the ideal candidate for this key position," said Joyce Berry, vice president for Advancement and Strategic Initiatives at Colorado State.

Through cooperative relationships and support services, the World Trade Center Denver and its members can access the resources of the world’s major trading centers for information, trade and business contacts and a wide variety of specialized international services.
McCune has a long history at the university, most recently as associate director of development in the College of Business. Previously, from 1983-1987, he served as a tenure-track assistant professor in construction management when it was in the Industrial Sciences Department in the former College of Professional Studies. During that time, he also served as assistant department chair and associate director of the Office of Research Development and Training.
McCune first began working with the World Trade Center in 1991 when his construction/project management company at the time, 2MS Inc., was invited to join a U.S. economic development group traveling to the Soviet Union.
He obtained his master’s of science in Construction Management from Colorado State in 1982. He received his bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of New Mexico.
