The Washington Post, Sept. 12, 2015 – Tech company: No indication that Clinton’s e-mail server was ‘wiped’
The company that managed Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private e-mail server said it has “no knowledge of the server being wiped,” the strongest indication to date that tens of thousands of e-mails that Clinton has said were deleted could be recovered. To make the information go away permanently, a server must be wiped — a process that includes overwriting the underlying data with gibberish, possibly several times. That process, according to Platte River Networks, the ­Denver-based firm that has managed the system since 2013, apparently did not happen. “Platte River has no knowledge of the server being wiped,” company spokesman Andy Boian told The Washington Post. “All the information we have is that the server wasn’t wiped.”

The Wall Street Journal, Aug. 19, 2015 – Hillary Clinton Campaign Says Classified Emails Were on Server
Hillary Clinton’s campaign said Wednesday that emails on the private server she used when she was secretary of state contained material that is now classified, the clearest explanation thus far of an issue that has roiled her bid for the presidency. The firm hired to handle the server in June 2013 after Mrs. Clinton left office was a 40-person company in Denver more accustomed to handling tech chores such as network monitoring and cybersecurity for banks, law firms and construction companies. Platte River Networks didn’t know about any classified material on the server, a spokesman, Andy Boian, said Wednesday. Mr. Boian said the Clinton server was picked up at the Clintons’ home in New York and moved to a “secure data center in New Jersey,” where it operated until last week. He said the computer was operational when Platte River took possession of it. “It was an email server,” he said, “That’s what they used it for.”

Colorado Real Estate Journal, June 5 – June 18, 2013: Featured Article with Andy Boian regarding “Now is the time to plan: crisis communications for managers”
Emergency situations, even disasters, happen all the time, calling for immediate action. If you are the manager of a property in which a crisis takes place, it is imperative for you to have a well-organized action plan in place so you are equipped to begin resolving the situation, communicating with the media and reassuring residents. To be without a strategy in this kind of situation puts both you and your property at risk. The time is now for you to develop a crisis communications plan that allows you to respond with clear direction and messaging for everyone involved.

JoAnne Davidson, The Denver Post: Launching a “new day for Kempe”; Going “Over the Edge” for Cancer League
What is being described as a “new day for Kempe” continues to take shape as new leaders step into top-level jobs at the Anschutz Medical Campus-based agency that is an international leader in child abuse prevention and treatment.

Dr. Des Runyan, an expert in helping children recover not only from physical abuse but from what that abuse does to their mental health, is to begin his tenure as director of the Kempe Center in August. He comes to Colorado from the University of North Carolina, where he was a professor of social medicine and pediatrics.

Patricia Peterson became president and chief executive of the Kempe Foundation seven months ago, succeeding Jesse Wolff, who left to take a similar position with Goodwill Industries of Denver. Investment banker Jon Kruljac’s term as chair of the Kempe Foundation board has ended, and Andy Boian, head of dovetail solutions, is its new leader.
