The Summit will feature a keynote address and awards presentation by the Governor.
Governor Gary R. Herbert has led Utah’s recovery from the Great Recession to a position of national economic prominence. His unwavering focus on economic development includes attracting businesses and investment to the state while helping homegrown businesses flourish.
The governor is focused on four cornerstones to strengthen Utah’s economy: education, jobs, energy and self-determination. As a result, Utah has become a premier destination for business, jobs and an unsurpassed quality of life.
As Utah’s 17th governor, he took the oath of office on August 11, 2009. Prior to becoming the state’s chief executive, Governor Herbert served as lieutenant governor for five years. He is the past chair of the Western Governors Association and National Governors Association.
