Terry Considine, JD (born 1947) is an American politician and the CEO of AIMCO, a real estate investment trust that he helped found through various acquisitions and mergers.[1]


Considine attended Harvard University for his undergraduate degree and later attended Harvard Law School.[citation needed]

He served as a Republican member of the Colorado Senate from 1987 to 1992.[2] He was the primary organizer of Coloradans Back in Charge, a grassroots initiative that led to Colorado being the first state to impose term limits on the governor, state legislature and congressional delegation.[2]

He left the state Senate early in 1992 to pursue the open seat in the United States Senate created by the decision of Democrat Tim Wirth to forgo a bid for a second term. Considine was defeated in the 1992 general election by Democrat Ben Nighthorse Campbell.[3] Campbell later became a Republican while still in office and was re-elected as a Republican in 1998.

He is listed as member of the Leadership Council of the Club for Growth.[4] He also serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Bradley Foundation.[5]

He is a son-in-law of former Georgia U.S. Representative Howard "Bo" Callaway (1927–2014). He is married to Betsy Callaway Considine; the couple has three children.

Terry Considine was inducted into the Colorado Business Hall of Fame by Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain and the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce in 2017.
