The March 2018 issue of Utah Business magazine features CEO of the Year, and “Olympic Dreams,” a piece on Utah’s pursuit of yet another Olympic bid.
CEO of the Year:
It’s true: it can be lonely at the top. But the CEOs honored in these pages don’t believe in isolation – they use their leadership to bring together teams, to support and mentor junior executives, and to reach into the community. While being the one to make tough decisions is, at times, painfully difficult, our 12 CEO of the Year recipients take a collaborative approach in order to ensure their decisions have the support of company leaders and employees all through the ranks. Join us in paying tribute to these remarkable chief executives.
Just as the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games got off to a start, Utah’s own Olympic Exploratory Committee (OEC) released its years-in-the-making report about whether the Beehive State should once again bid to host the Winter Games. Their answer: a resounding yes.
And it’s not just the OEC who’s excited about the prospect of hosting again. Days before the report was officially released, the Utah State Legislature advanced a concurrent resolution to back a future bid. And most Utahns support the idea, too – a Dan Jones poll found that 89 percent of respondents would like the state to host another round of the Winter Games.
