(DDI) board position with the Downtown Denver Partnership (DDP). The position is a wonderful opportunity for both Ott and SlimGenics to support local business endeavors and give back to the community. DDP continually provides support, resources, energy and passion to reinforce and improve the foundation upon which Downtown Denver resides.
Downtown Denver, Inc. (DDI) serves as the advocacy board for the Downtown Denver Partnership membership.

“I am honored to be included with other business leaders and extraordinary companies supporting the Denver community,” said Katherine Ott, CEO of SlimGenics. As a Denver resident, business owner and commercial property owner, Ott brings both personal and professional experience to this role.
Ott launched SlimGenics in Colorado in March 2003 in an effort to combat the growing obesity epidemic by creating a weight-loss program focused on real food, individualized support and comprehensive nutritional education to aid clients in embracing a healthier lifestyle. Today, SlimGenics operates 35 locations across Colorado, Minnesota and Ohio with more than 200 employees. SlimGenics was recently named #14 on ColoradoBiz Magazine’s annual Top Woman-Owned Companies list, marking Ott’s third appearance in the top 15 on this prestigious list.
“Our success is built upon the foundation of helping others embrace a better life through better health. The SlimGenics program can be successfully followed anywhere in the country through the combination of our time-proven weight-loss program, lifestyle strategies, nutritional supplementation and personal support, which has changed thousands of lives over the last 13 years.”
Ott’s former board positions have included respected organizations such as Colorado Chautauqua Association, The StorageTek Foundation, Colorado Business for Social Responsibility and others. Her unwavering dedication and support to Colorado businesses and charitable organizations has spanned the last 20 years. In 2010, Ott established The SlimGenics Foundation, which strives to support the communities SlimGenics serves by donating a portion of sales to combat childhood obesity.
