Gov. Herbert statement on the death of Ian Cumming

SALT LAKE CITY (Feb. 3, 2018) – Gov. Gary R. Herbert has released the following statement on the death of Ian Cumming:

I was saddened to learn late last night that we have lost Ian Cumming, a powerful contributor to the Utah spirit and our community. Ian had extraordinary business acumen and drive that allowed him to turn around dozens of ailing businesses. In his impressive but quiet way, he left an indelible mark on the outdoor recreation industry. He played an important role in bringing the Olympics to Utah and he was a generous supporter of the causes he believed in. Although we didn’t see eye-to-eye on every issue, I was always impressed by Ian’s generosity to what he thought was in the best interest of Utah, his native state. I express my deepest condolences to the Cumming family as they mourn Ian’s passing.
