Meet Our Board

Executive Board Members

 
Shaune Walter - President   My name is Shaune Walter. In 2014 my wife and I quit smoking combustible cigarettes. Through passion for our success we decided to open our first vape shop. We opened VapeWize in Lakewood Colorado in May of 2014 and opened our second location in Centennial in August of 2015. I have personally helped countless friends, family, and customers switch to vaping. I have developed countless business relationships with local E-liquid Manufacturers and Vape Shops. The continued success of everyone involved has made me passionate about advocacy for the future of vaping.  I saw an opportunity in RMSFA to bring my passion and leadership for advocacy to fruition. In January 2019 I offered my time to start bringing the Colorado Retail Stakeholders together. After countless hours inside legislative hearings and nurturing stakeholder relations I was prompted with an opportunity to become President of RMSFA. I am committed to saving the integrity of the vaping industry in the State of Colorado. I work with State and Local Governments to influence policy that is in the best interest of our Members. This policy influence wouldn’t be possible for a single person so as President of RMSFA I am honored to be surrounded by the great leadership of our Board Members.
