Noel Ginsburg

CEOFounder and CEO, InterTech Plastics CEO, CareerWise Colorado

In 1980, while still in his senior year at the University of Denver, Ginsburg founded Intertech Plastics. Intertech is a custom injection molding business, manufacturing products for the consumer, packaging, industrial and medical device markets. The company employs nearly 200 people out of two facilities and operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Ginsburg is also the founding Executive Chair of the Board and CEO for CareerWise Colorado, a statewide nonprofit organization

dedicated to building the middle class by closing the skills gap through experiential learning. CareerWise is building a system of youth apprenticeships across a variety of modern industries to ensure businesses have a capable workforce and all students have a clear and sustainable career path to success.

In addition to his current positions at Intertech and CareerWise, Ginsburg leads Colorado’s Business Experiential Learning (BEL) Commission—a position he was appointed to by Governor Hickenlooper—and he is the founding chair of the Colorado Advanced Manufacturing Alliance (CAMA).

In 2017 and 2018, Ginsburg made a bid for Governor of the State of Colorado. During his campaign, he traveled the state and connected deeply with the concerns of its citizens on many issues, and elevated the discussion around the need for workforce and education innovation. He has since returned to his role at CareerWise where he applies the learnings from the campaign trail of Colorado’s communities to the development of a statewide modern youth apprenticeship system.

Throughout his career, Ginsburg has been active in many community and civic organizations. Notably, Ginsburg was among the founding board members and is a past president of the Colorado I Have a Dream Foundation. Along with his wife Leslie, Ginsburg sponsored 42 inner-city children in the first class of “Dreamers” in the Colorado I Have a Dream Foundation. Their commitment continued through the children’s graduation from high school and beyond, spanning more than 10 years and resulting in a graduation rate nine times the neighborhood average. Ginsburg received the Martin Luther King Social Responsibility Business Award in 1995, the Daniel L. Ritchie Award for Ethics in Business in 1998, the 2001 Leadership Denver Outstanding Alumnus Award, the 2012 Goodwill Community Leader Award and the Anti-Defamation League’s 2016 Civil Rights Award.

Ginsburg also served as a member of the State Economic Development Commission and the Colorado Workforce Development Council, a board member of the Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce, chair of the Denver Public Schools College and Career Pathways council, board chair and general campaign chair of the Mile High United Way, and on the Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado. He’s also served as president of the Denver Public Schools Foundation, and was founding co-chair of The Leadership Initiative and member of the US Youth Employment Action Network at the Clinton Global Initiative.

Noel is the proud husband to Leslie Ginsburg and father of their children, Corey Ginsburg, who works for Intertech Plastics, and Ali Ginsburg, a personal trainer and body sculpting competitor in Denver.
