Salt Lake City — Zions Bank has launched “The Current,” a monthly economic outlook for Utah and the U.S. focused on leading indicators including consumer confidence, housing, inflation and jobs. The publication also provides analysis of current events, which in recent issues has included the federal sequester and the fiscal cliff.
“We know that business owners and managers look closely at these key economic indicators to chart a course for their companies to grow and thrive,” said Zions Bank president and CEO Scott Anderson. “We’re happy to provide this publication at no cost to businesses to help them plan for the future and prepare for shifts in the market.”
“The Current” is written by Randy Shumway, CEO of Salt Lake City-based Cicero Group, which provides data analytics and economic consulting to Zions Bank.
Shumway is a graduate of Brigham Young University and earned an MBA with highest honors from Harvard Business School in Cambridge, Mass. He has 17 years of experience in strategic planning at companies including Bain & Company and The Dow Chemical Company.
“The Current” is released during the third week of every month. Current and past issues are available on Zions Bank’s website at https://www.zionsbank.com/about-zions-bank/economic-outlook.jsp.
