Gary Klein graduated from CU with a degree in Accounting in 1958. He began his CPA career working for Arthur Andersen & Co. in Denver. In 1961, he was Assistant Treasurer of MFC, a bank holding company in Denver. He was introduced to the new sport of snowmobiling in 1964, and became the distributor of Bombardier Ski Doo in six western states. This company was successful and was sold in 1970. Gary was an early investor in Vail Associates; a founding member in Vicorp Restaurants (Village Inn); National Bank of the Rockies (now Vectra); and various real estate and start up companies in the Front Range.
