From Seattle to Everett, Washington to Whitefish, Montana to Enumclaw, Washington to Castle Pines, to East Bay to Dublin, California to Portland, Oregon – and back to Castle Pines, life has been an exciting adventure for Todd and Debbie Broderick. Todd started as a courtesy clerk for Safeway when he was a teenager in Seattle, and in the 36 years since then, he has moved up the ranks and is now the regional president for Safeway Albertsons with their Western Region headquarters in Centennial. In spite of all their relocating, the Brodericks’ love and loyalty for the company is impressive and has served them well.
Todd and Debbie, who met while attending college at Western Washington University, were both part of the rowing crew team at the college, and they just celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary on September 17. They have raised two grown daughters, Callan (27) and Taylor (23) who both graduated from Rock Canyon High School and Colorado State University and who now hold successful jobs (Callan in Kansas City, MO and Taylor in Louisville, CO). The family still takes yearly vacations together and are planning a trip to Fort Lauderdale at the end of October.
Debbie did volunteer work in chemotherapy centers while they lived in California, and she is looking at doing more volunteer work in the Denver area. Todd, who gets up around 4 a.m. each day, has a full week of working with all the Safeway stores (managers and vendors) as they re-banner and promote their locally grown produce and meats, which are all cut and packaged in the stores.
Putting their roots down again in Castle Pines, the Brodericks love to hike, bike, run triathlons, go to sporting events, workout, attend concerts at Red Rocks (because it’s like no other concert venue) and entertain at their beautiful home. They enjoy the easy proximity to malls, stores, restaurants and other services in the Castle Rock area. They say it’s nice to be empty nesters and get in a few more vacations together, even as Todd focuses on attracting good employees and building up the 125 stores he travels to year-round. Todd and Debbie Broderick love being back in Castle Pines and the beauty of Colorado and hope to stay a while.
