According to the publication, "these individuals represent a promising next generation of Denver leaders – up-and-comers who have already accomplished much, but whose best days in the community are likely ahead of them. They join the ranks of past honorees who have gone on to become CEOs, executive directors and elected officials of the highest order. Simply put, they are the cream of the crop in their respective fields."

At Holland & Knight, Mr. Belzley represents energy infrastructure developers and operators, physical commodities traders, and buyers and sellers of hydrocarbons on a wide variety of commercial and corporate transactions. He advises clients on terminaling, processing and transportation arrangements involving crude oil, natural gas, natural gas liquids and refined petroleum products, marketing activities including compliance with antitrust and competition regulations and trading activities including forward physical contracts, exchange agreements and credit-related matters, as well as matters facing master limited partnerships.
