Winners Announced For The Utah Ethical Leadership Awards

Salt Lake City—Nine businesses, nonprofits and government agencies that embody the spirit of ethical leadership were honored with the 2019 Utah Ethical Leadership Awards. 

The awards recognize organizations that embody the spirit of ethical leadership exhibited by Bill Daniels, a founder of the modern cable industry and former owner of the Utah Stars. Daniels believed deeply in ethics and integrity, and the importance of absolute ethical principles. An exceptionally honest businessman, Daniels always based his decisions on what he believed was right — not just what he thought was best for himself or his company. This attitude earned him respect and loyalty throughout the business world. 

“The Utah Ethical Leadership Awards Program celebrates ethical leadership in the spirit of Bill Daniels. The competition within categories was fierce, and all the organizations recognized today should be celebrated as great examples of ethical leadership in the State of Utah,” said Bo Peretto, Daniels Fund Senior Vice President of Communications and Operations. 

This year’s awards honor nine organizations — three winners and six finalists — who embody that spirit. Three businesses, three nonprofits and three government entities were recognized. 

This year’s winners and finalists honored Friday morning were: 


• Overall Winner – Savage 

• Finalists – Northrop Grumman Corporation and Zions Bank Nonprofit 

• Overall Winner – Fit To Recover Inc. 

• Finalists – Maliheh Free Clinic and Utah Foundation Government 

• Overall Winner – The City of South Salt Lake – Promise South Salt Lake 

• Finalists – The Utah Division of Archives and Records Service and The Southeastern Utah Association of Local Governments. 

The honorees were announced at a breakfast celebration on Friday, Sept. 6, 2019 in the Bill and Pat Child Family Community Hall at the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business. All finalists were invited to attend the breakfast.
