We appreciate the support of Gov. Herbert and the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development team as we embark on this opportunity.”
“We thank the entire Alliance Data team for their commitment to, and investment in, the state of Utah,” said Val Hale, executive director of the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development. “Alliance Data is poised for future growth, and we wish them continued success in our state.”
