Congratulations to our Theresa Foxley as she accepts the new position as CEO of EDCUtah. This news is bittersweet for us. In her time as GOED's Deputy Director, she has improved processes, and brought more transparency, engagement, reach and impact. We know she will continue to strengthen the GOED and EDCU partnership to benefit Utah's economic development efforts. We wish her all the best!
