In October, 2015, Forbes Magazine reported the following:
“Utah’s Business Climate Ranks Best In The United States.
A strong labor force, low energy costs and robust employment outlook land the Beehive State in first for the fifth time in six years.”

The secret is out and the business world is taking notice. Nestled in the mountains and valleys of Utah you’ll find one of the most vibrant business climates in the country. But don’t just take our word for it. Here are some accolades from a few of our fans:

  • “Best Managed State in the Nation” (Pew Center)
  •  #1 Pollina Corporate Top 10 Pro-Business State
  • “#1 Most Competitive State for Business” (Beacon Hill Institute)
  • “#1 in Technology Concentration and Dynamism” (Milken Institute)

Utah # 1 “Volunteerism in America”

Utah, for the second year in a row, has been ranked as the state whose citizens have volunteered the most of any state in the country. The thousands of hours donated each year add to several billions of dollars in services saved by Utah communities each year.

Utah…Life Elevated

Life Elevated is not just a tourist slogan but really embodies the state we
live in.

These are the Utah stories I am proud of. As a fifth generation Utahn, I’m proud to serve our great state and its great people. We aren’t without serious problems but we know how to work together to find workable solutions to our most-vexing issues.

Utah is great because its people are great and our best days are ahead.

Let’s talk about the

Utah success story.
