Any organization, program, or person can achieve breakthrough results. Kristen Cox knows firsthand the untapped capacity that exists in every aspect of government: its people.
From her personal experience relying on government services as a blind person to her leadership at the Utah Governor’s Office of Management and Budget (GOMB), Kris provides unique insight into what is possible with the right mindset, skills, and tools.
Kristen Cox was appointed executive director of GOMB by Utah Gov. Gary R. Herbert in 2012. GOMB’s mission is to create more value for every tax dollar invested. Under Kris’ leadership, Utah improved government performance by more than 27 percent in four years, exceeding the 25 percent goal set by Gov. Herbert.
