Harris H. Simmons, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Zions Bancorporation, and A. Scott Anderson, president and chief executive officer of Zions First National Bank were honored as A Giant In Our City last night. The award presented by the Salt Lake Chamber, Utah’s largest and longest-serving statewide business association, is recognized as the most prestigious business award given in Utah. Simmons and Anderson are the 33rd and 34th recipients of the award in its 43-year history.
“I could not possibly overstate the impact these great men have had—and continue to make—on our community,” said Lane Beattie, president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber. “Harris and Scott have strengthened businesses across Utah, supported important community programs and made incalculable contributions to the quality of life of all Utahns. I’m very gratified with the decision to honor them as Giants In Our City.”
