Board of Governors - 2018

In 2016, ChamberWest added a Board of Governors to provide strategic direction to the Board of Directors and Staff. The Board of Governors is also comprised of volunteers who serve in leadership roles in their organizations and meet bi-monthly on the odd months of the year. Their vision and perspective as leaders in their organizations and in the community are invaluable to the Board of Directors and staff.

Spencer Ferguson
Past Chair
Wasatch I.T.
Chief Executive Officer

At age 22, Spencer Ferguson became an entrepreneur by founding Wasatch Software, which specialized in software license sales and consulting. The company quickly grew to become the #1 reseller of Microsoft products in Utah. In 2010, Spencer led a change of direction in the organization’s focus, renaming it Wasatch I.T., and added a new division focused on outsourced technical support for small- and medium-sized businesses. While roughly 1,000 companies in the state offer the same service, Wasatch I.T. has already become one of the five largest. The organization has won numerous awards throughout its history, including “Inc. 5000,” “Utah 100,” “Microsoft Partner of the Year” and many others.
