Jim Carlson Recognized as 2018 Utah Business CEO of the Year
20 March 2018 — This past week, Zurixx’s CEO and Co-Founder, James “Jim” Carlson, was recognized as Utah Business Magazine’s CEO of the Year. Utah Business’ CEO of the Year Awards honors business leaders who have displayed innovation, have made smart business decisions and have proven financial success within their business.
Jim Carlson, along with business partners, Cris Cannon and Jeff Spangler, set out in 2012 on a new business venture in the financial education industry. Together, they started Zurixx. Jim took on the role of CEO, and he hasn’t looked back since. Over the years, Zurixx has received nine recognitions due to their rapid revenue growth. These awards include being named the No. 1 fastest-growing company in Utah Business’ Fast 50, and the No. 43 fastest-growing company of the Inc. 500.
“I want everyone at the company to know that this is your award. The things we’ve accomplished and the community impact we’ve had as a company are due to the hard work and efforts of everyone on our team. You should be proud of what you do every day to provide for your families, your colleagues, and your communities,” remarked Jim Carlson. “Finally, I’d be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge that Jeff, Cris and I function essentially as Co-CEOs and that the direction and leadership of our company doesn’t stem from one person. We also have a great management team that supports the three of us and provides further leadership and direction to everyone at the company.”
