Since taking over GOED nearly five years ago, I have been honored and humbled to have worked with each one of you and those experiences have left a deeply important impression on me for which I am grateful. Together we have faced a lot of dragons, but we have also experienced incredible successes. Think back to where you were and how you felt in 2009. The business environment was saturated with uncertainty, which had a cascading effect on everyone In our state and throughout the world. It was in this environment that we worked with Governor Herbert to set a clear vision, Utah will lead the nation as the best performing economy and be recognized as a premier global destination This was a bold statement, but together, we both individually and collectively, can now say that we have achieved many goals associated with this statement and that we are clearly on the right path. I believe that going forward, we will not just maintain our momentum but that by continuing to work together we will continue to accelerate and lead. Please know how deeply grateful I am to you for the friendship and for the opportunity that I have had to work shoulder to shoulder with you. Although I am leaving my current role to go back to the private sector, this is not goodbye, it is simply turning the page to the next chapter. My father, the eternal optimist, has always told me "the best is yet to come" and I fully believe this for each of us and for the people of our great state, the best truly is yet to come.
