Eleven C-level executives were honored Friday during Utah Business’ first-ever CXO of the Year luncheon and awards program. The CXOs, who hold roles such as chief financial officer and chief operating officer, were honored for their ability to lead their companies by overseeing day-to-day operations as well as planning for the future.
Each of the honorees spoke about how grateful they were to work for their respective companies. They also each spoke about the importance of the teams standing behind them.
Debi Mofford, chief information officer and senior vice president of IT at Workers Compensation Fund, thanked her team for all the hard work they do, adding that she “feels like one of the luckiest people in the world.”
Kurt Williams, chief product officer at InMoment (formerly Mindshare Technologies), agreed and said when it comes to success, it’s ultimately a measure of the team.
“We don’t have any success without our teams,” he said. “It always takes a team effort.”
Jason Kimball, chief brand officer at Jaybird, also spoke about the importance of team work and one of his main philosophies: that no great ideas come from behind a desk.
“We always make sure with Jaybird that we get out and embrace what we’re about and do the things we love to do,” he said.
