The Salt Lake Chamber has created a new podcast called “CEO Success Stories.” In every episode Derek Miller, president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber and Downtown Alliance, sits down with a top CEO from across the state to hear from them their leadership philosophy, best practices and lessons learned.

If you have ideas or thoughts about whom we should interview next for the podcast, send us an email at or a message us on social media to our handle: @saltlakechamber.

We are pleased to be joined with the “CEO of the Salt Lake Community College” President Deneece Huftalin.

President Deneece Huftalin currently serves as the president of Salt Lake Community College. However, she has served SLCC students, faculty and staff for more than two decades in various roles. In her tenure as president, she launched a collegewide strategic planning cycle which produced a new vision, mission, values and strategic goals for the college. She also leads efforts to strengthen completion rates, transfer pathways, workforce responsiveness and equity in student access and completion.
