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.
We are pleased to be joined with the “CEO of the State” Gov. Gary Herbert for our inaugural episode.
Gov. 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, Gov. Herbert served as lieutenant governor for five years. He is the past chair of the Western Governors Association and National Governors Association.
