Lori Chillingworth Named Chair of Salt Lake Chamber Board of Governors, Keith McMullin Named Vice Chair

The Salt Lake Chamber has named Lori Chillingworth, executive vice president of Zions Bank, as the 107th person to serve as chair of the Salt Lake Chamber Board of Governors. Chillingworth will begin her one-year term as chair starting on July 1, 2015.

“We are fortunate to have Lori Chillingworth step forward as chair of our organization. I have great confidence in her and the direction she will provide the Chamber in the coming year,” said Lane Beattie, President and CEO, Salt Lake Chamber. “Lori is a professional who understands what it takes to be successful in today’s economy. Her insight as our incoming chair will elevate the Chamber in a way similar to the work done this past year by our outgoing chair, Terry Buckner.”

A successful banker, Chillingworth has been recognized four times in US Banker magazine’s “Most Powerful Women in Banking” issue, ranking among its “25 Women to Watch” list.

She is a graduate of the Pacific Coast Banking School.

“The Chamber’s work on critical policy issues has been a major force for shaping the business friendly climate that we have in this state,” said Chillingworth. “Utah is currently the fastest growing economy in the nation. We have been ranked the number one state by the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Enterprising States Report two years in a row. The Chamber has played a significant role in these achievements, and during my tenure as chair of the Board of Governors we plan to encourage and continue this growth.”

Chillingworth takes over as chair for Terry Buckner, who is the president and CEO of the Buckner Company. As immediate past chair, Buckners’s influence will continue to play an active role on the Chamber Executive Board.

Keith McMullin, president and CEO of Deseret Management Corporation, will take over the role of vice chair on the Chamber’s Board of Governors. McMullin has served in his position with Deseret Management Corporation since April 2012. Prior to that, McMullin served as a second counselor in the Presiding Bishopric of the LDS Church.
