The Utah Senate confirmed the appointment of three new members to the Governor’s Office of Economic Development Board of Directors. They will be officially sworn in at the next board meeting on June 8.
The new appointees are Carine Clark, a member of the Silicon Slopes Executive Board; Steve Neeleman, general surgeon and founder and vice chair of HealthEquity; and Ted Wilson, former UCAIR executive director and former mayor of Salt Lake City.
“The newly appointed board members are well respected in their industries and the community,” said Val Hale, executive director of GOED. “Their leadership, experience and community involvement in diverse areas of our state will serve us well.”
New board members replace Josh Romney, Jake Boyer and Sam Granato and will begin a four-year term ending in 2021. In addition to the new appointments, board members Margo Jacobs, Peter Mouskondis and Chairman Mel Lavitt were reappointed for another term.
The GOED Board of Directors serves as an advisory board, providing recommendations to the executive director regarding GOED’s incentives and grant programs, in addition to initiatives in marketing, workforce development and other relevant economic development matters.
