SALT LAKE CITY — A Zions Bank executive will serve as chairwoman of the Salt Lake Chamber's board of governors beginning in July, chamber officials announced Tuesday.

Lori Chillingworth, executive vice president of the regional bank, will be the 107th person to lead the board. She will serve a one-year term, as is customary for the position.

“(Chillingworth) is a professional who understands what it takes to be successful in today’s economy,” said Lane Beattie, president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber.

Chillingworth will take over on July 1 for Terry Buckner, CEO of The Buckner Co. Buckner will continue as a member of the chamber’s executive board.

“The chamber’s work on critical policy issues has been a major force for shaping the business-friendly climate that we have in this state. Utah is currently the fastest-growing economy in the nation,” Chillingworth said. "We have been ranked the No. 1 state by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Enterprising States Report two years in a row. The chamber has played a significant role in these achievements, and during my tenure as chair of the board of governors, we plan to encourage and continue this growth.”

Keith McMullin, CEO of the Deseret Management Corp., will begin serving as vice chairman on the chamber’s board of governors. McMullin has held his position as CEO since 2012 and was previously second counselor for the Presiding Bishopric of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
