Strategic Changes Made to Business Outreach Efforts

The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) has realigned a number of business outreach services to better meet the needs of the private sector and to continue to be one of the nation’s best performing economies.

Utah is becoming a bigger player on the international stage, so it is important to have a team in place that can help facilitate that growth. To this end, Brett Heimburger, formerly the director of the Asia-Pacific region for GOED’s International Trade and Diplomacy Office (ITDO), has been promoted to director.
