Steven J. Borick
Steve came to Western from California and graduated in 1975 with a degree in Business Administration. Following the founding and funding of several endowed business scholarships, Steve, together with his family, made the lead gift to the new Borick Business Building on Western’s campus, completed in 2008 (the first major academic building on a Colorado public campus to be designed, built, furnished and equipped entirely with private funds). Steve was honored to deliver the commencement address to Western’s graduating class of 2003.
Steve continues to support Western through major gifts to the Business School and Mountain Sports.
In March 2014, Steve retired as chairman CEO of Superior Industries International, Inc., one of the largest light vehicle aluminum wheel suppliers in the world, a role he held since 2005. He served as Executive Vice President since 2000, and served on the Board of Directors since 1981.

Steve is President and COO of Texakota Inc., an oil and gas exploration and development
company based in Houston, Texas, which he acquired in 1976, and General Partner of its production affiliate, Texakota Oil Company.
