Lara Fritts, director of Salt Lake City’s Department of Economic Development, has been named to the 2019 list of “North America’s Top 50 Economic Developers,” selected by consulting agency Consultant Connect. The economic development professionals selected for this list were nominated by their colleagues in both the economic development industry and the site consultant community for excellent practices, innovation and success in building the communities they serve. Recipients will receive their award at Consultant Connect’s ECONOMIX event in Charleston, South Carolina, in December. The department was formed in 2016. The city says that under Fritts’ leadership, it has been instrumental in bringing over 9,000 jobs and nearly $1 billion in capital investment to Salt Lake City.
