After more than a 30-year successful and storied career, Visit Salt Lake veteran Michael Mack is retiring this month. He also served as the Vice President of Services and the Director of Travel Trade & Strategic Partnerships and chaired numerous committees over the years, most recently and notably, the LGBTQ+ committee.

During that time, he provided leadership for multiple statewide tourism organizations, serving as president of Utah Travel Regions, president of Bicycle Utah, and president of the Utah Tourism Industry Coalition (now the UTIA).

After earning his law degree from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at BYU and working in private practice and as a Deputy District Attorney, Michael realized his true passion was in the convention and tourism world. His first posting was as CEO of the Utah Valley Convention & Visitors Bureau and Central Utah Film Commission.

Civic engagement has always been a pillar of his life and a true measure of his deep respect and caring for others. He’s served on the boards for the Utah Arts Festival, Salt Lake Homeless Coalition, Salt Lake Public Market Study and acted as chair of Salt Lake Arts Council.
