Utah is at a crossroads. Following the Covid-19 recession we are experiencing an economic recovery. We are in a great position to attract more investment capital and businesses looking for better business environments. However inflationary pressures, uncertain federal government fiscal policy, global realignment of supply chains and record high asset prices complicate the investment environment and the path forward for our economy. We need more than a standard appointee or even a Certified Professional Accountant. We need a Treasurer with extensive investing experience in the global economic environment and a deep understanding of large organizations. My 14 years as a global investment banker has helped me build an extensive skillset and knowledge base that will inform my decisions as Treasurer and allow me to help Utah successfully navigate the current economic and investment environment.
