Neil Oberfeld Named Chair-Elect of ADL’s Mountain States Regional Board

  • May 31, 2013

The Mountain States Region of the Anti-Defamation League announced that Neil Oberfeld was named Regional Chair-Elect at ADL’s annual meeting on May 30, 2013.  He will succeed current Chair Andrea Shpall in 2014, after she completes her two-year term.

Oberfeld is a shareholder with international law firm Greenberg Traurig, where he focuses his practice on business and real estate transactions, including acquisition, development, leasing finance, and investment, as well as other areas.  He is a graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder and Boston University School of Law.

Oberfeld first joined ADL’s Mountain States Regional Board in 1991, and has been recognized by ADL nationally with the Daniel Ginsberg Leadership Award and locally with the Fred Silverberg Young Leadership Award.  He co-chairs ADL’s regional Development Committee and serves as a member of ADL’s National Commission.

“The mission of the ADL is as vital today as it was at its founding in 1913,” said Oberfeld.  “I am proud that I will be presiding over ADL’s Regional Board as the organization embarks on its second century of fighting the defamation of the Jewish people and securing justice and fair treatment to all.  New times bring new challenges, but the mission of the ADL has stood the test of time. I am pleased to be a part of such an outstanding organization.”

Oberfeld is Trustee of the Rose Community Foundation and currently chairs its Jewis Life Committee.  He also serves as the chair of the Governor’s Commission on Community Service/Serve Colorado and has been named one of Law Week Colorado’s “Lawyers of the Year”, received the Denver Bar Association’s “Volunteer Lawyer of the Year Award”, and was included as Denver Business Journal’s “Forty Under 40” list.

“Neil brings a depth of knowledge and a passion for ADL’s agenda to his new role as Chair,” said Scott L. Levin, ADL Mountain States Regional Director.  “He is truly committed to ADL’s mission, and we are fortunate to be the beneficiary of his time, focus, and energy.”
