The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity (Go Utah) is pleased to announce Kyle Palmer as its associate director for the Unified Economic Opportunity Commission.

“I’m thrilled to have Kyle join the Go Utah team, and I have every confidence in his ability to execute the expansive duties of this role,” said Dan Hemmert, the Economic Opportunity office’s executive director. “The Unified Economic Opportunity Commission pulls together the best minds in the state to create a strategic economic vision, and Kyle possesses the perfect skill set to manage it.”
