Stuart Derman Brings Vision To The Table

“I’m not sure I’d consider myself successful just yet,” says Stuart Derman, senior marketing manager at Blue Raven Solar. “There is a lot of distance between my current position and the lofty goals that I set for myself.” But at only 27, Mr. Derman has already achieved so much. A graduate of the University of Utah’s Parks, Recreation, and Tourism program, he is also the cofounder and executive director of Wasatch Mountain Arts, a nonprofit organization devoted to reconnecting people with the outdoors through film and events. Featuring 70+ adventure and environmental films over the first week of April, they are an entirely volunteer run organization. “This is a passion project,” Mr. Derman explains. “I want to make my own little dent in the universe.”
