Slade Cogswell

Born and raised in the Vail Valley, our owner and creative director Slade Cogswell skipped town for a while until Vail’s natural beauty (and his lovely wife) brought him back here for good.  As the captain of the ship for the last eight years here at 970, Slade’s goal has always been the same: crafting beautiful, innovative, and authentic solutions for 970’s iconic clientele, without ever compromising on quality. Hands-on and uber-energetic, Slade combines the impeccable business acumen of a seasoned marketing agency owner with the boundless creativity of a world traveler who may or may not have spent a year of his life living in a teepee and traveling the Pan-American Highway.
