CEO success stories: Nathan Rafferty, Ski Utah

The Salt Lake Chamber has created a new podcast called “CEO Success Stories.”

In every episode Derek Miller, president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber and Downtown Alliance, sits down with a top CEO from across the state to hear from them their leadership philosophy, best practices and lessons learned.

If you have ideas or thoughts about whom we should interview next for the podcast, send us an email at [email protected] or a message us on social media to our handle: @saltlakechamber.

We are pleased to be joined with the CEO of Ski Utah, Nathan Rafferty.

Nathan Rafferty was named President & CEO of Ski Utah in October 2005. Before changing roles within the organization, he served as Ski Utah’s director of communications for seven years, with previous experience at Park City Mountain Resort. His responsibilities include continuing to promote Utah’s 14 mountain resorts with a budget of approximately $3.5 million. As past chair of the Utah Tourism Industry Association and vice-chair of the Utah Office of Tourism board of directors, he works on both promotion and legislative issues on a statewide level. A Utah native and Park City resident, Nathan has worked in various capacities in Utah’s ski industry, starting as an intern with Ski Utah the summer he graduated from the University of Arizona in 1994. In 2007, and again in 2012, he was named one of Utah’s “100 Most Influential People” by Utah Business Magazine. He was also on their “40 Under 40” list in 2008 and, most recently, received the magazine’s highest accolade – CEO of the Year, for 2018.
