Governor Gary R. Herbert has led Utah’s recovery from the Great Recession to a position of national economic prominence. His focus on economic development includes attracting businesses and investment to the state while helping homegrown businesses flourish.

The Governor is focused on four cornerstones to strengthen Utah’s economy: education, jobs, energy and self-determination. As a result, Utah has become a premier destination for business, jobs, and an unsurpassed quality of life.

As Utah’s 17th Governor, he took the Oath of Office on August 11, 2009. Prior to becoming the states’ chief executive, Governor Herbert served as Lieutenant Governor for five years and a Utah County Commissioner for 14 years. Governor Herbert and his wife, Jeanette, are the proud parents of six children and 16 grandchildren.
