He will serve in this role until a permanent replacement can be found.
Mejia, who ran for Denver mayor, replaces Jeff Campos who resigned following his arrest for kidnapping and domestic violence. That case is still pending.
Mejia helped guide the chamber in the early days and played an important role in growing its membership to 2,400 and the second largest organization of its kind in the country.
Mejia talks about his future, the future of the chamber and the Colorado economy in an interview that was conducted Thursday morning with 9NEWS.
