Mr. Pierpont has more than twenty years of public service experience with DWS and has played an important role in overseeing and participating in several agency initiatives resulting in more than $30 million savings to Utah taxpayers.

“I am excited for the opportunity to ensure that we continue to make the best use of taxpayers’ dollars as we carry on the efforts of operational excellence and getting all Utahns back to work,” said Mr. Pierpont. “I’m confident that a smooth transition will take place and that DWS will maintain a high level of service to our customers.”
