CFG
Founder

Originally from Hutchinson, Kansas, Dennis moved to Colorado with his family when he was 15 years old. He played college baseball at the University of Northern Colorado, competing in the College World Series in 1974. 

Dennis began his career in the financial services industry in 1976, ultimately starting his own firm, Capital Financial Group, Inc. in 1989. 

With his wife, Sandra, Denny loves to entertain family and friends over a glass of wine and one of his legendary grilled steaks. Still a huge sports fan, Denny spends much of his free time on the golf course or at a ball game.  

Dennis and Sandra have three grandchildren (and one on the way!). They love to travel to their favorite destinations, and visit family, especially his youngest son Cole and family now residing in Arizona.

Leah Kautz

Operations Manager

 Leah began her professional career working as a certified pharmacy technician before joining CFG in 2016. She has continuously gone above and beyond to harness new skills, take on continued education, and fine tune her professional development to master the operations for CFG. 

Leah is mother to daughter Teagan and son Asher. Together, there is nothing they would rather do than jump in the Subaru and head to the mountains. 

 

When a trip to the slopes just isn't an option, Leah can be found doing crafts with her kids, gardening, practicing yoga, or showing off her sewing skills. But arguably her most impressive hobby? Extreme bargain shopping.
