“It was rough… 3 months we were closed – $15M in earned revenue – GONE.”
Bert Vescolani, President & CEO, Denver Zoo
Since I was a young boy I’ve loved the Zoo. In 5th grade after school I’d sneak into the Buffalo Zoo by hopping a hidden fence, and I’d just watch the monkeys. Interviewing Bert Vescolani was a thrill for me – so many questions… about managing the financial challenges during a 3-month Covid total CLOSURE, about keeping animals, about the business model.
