The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity (Go Utah) today announced the appointment of Katelin Roberts to its Board of Directors.
The Go Utah Board consists of 15 members appointed to four-year terms by Gov. Spencer J. Cox with the advice and consent of the Utah Senate. The Go Utah Board helps promote and encourage the state’s economic, commercial, financial, industrial, agricultural, and civic welfare.
Katelin Roberts is the executive director of BioHive, a public-private nonprofit tasked with growing Utah’s life sciences and healthcare innovation industry. Before BioHive, Roberts was CEO of a venture-backed Utah medical device startup. She has also worked in various manufacturing and operations roles in aerospace and the consumer packaged goods industries. Roberts is currently an investment partner at MedMountain Ventures, a seed-stage healthcare venture capital fund based in Salt Lake City.
Roberts is replacing Andrea Moss on the Go Utah Board.
“We’re very excited to have Katelin Roberts join our board,” said Dan Hemmert, executive director of Go Utah. “Roberts brings years of experience from the life sciences industry, which will be a huge help as these types of companies grow in our state. We also want to thank Andrea Moss for her service on the Go Utah Board.”
