The Utah 1033 Foundation Welcomes Dave Kaufman as President and Stephen D. Taylor as Director on the Governing Board of the Foundation
SALT LAKE CITY – September 12, 2017 – Tore Steen, founder and chairman of The Utah 1033 Foundation, announced the appointment of Dave Kaufman as President of the Utah 1033 Foundation and Stephen D. Taylor as a director on the Governing Board.
“We’re very happy to announce Dave and Stephen in new positions at The Utah 1033 Foundation,” said Steen. “Dave has extensive experience in leading companies and will help guide the Foundation to continued growth. Likewise, Stephen will add great experience to the Governing Board and assist the Foundation in accomplishing its mission to help the families of Utah’s fallen heroes.”
Dave Kaufman came to Utah in 2007 after a 10-year career as a marketing executive with Intel Corporation where he managed a team responsible for nearly $5 billion in annual revenue. Kaufman is also the former Head of School at The Winter Sports School in Park City, a secondary school dedicated to preparing young winter athletes for college. He took the helm of the Winter Sports School in early 2013, where he managed the school’s transition from a private, tuition-based institution to a public Utah Charter School, almost tripling its enrollment and making its education model available to all Utahns.
“I’m thrilled to be serving as President of the Utah 1033 Foundation,” said Kaufman. “Utah has been my home for the past 10 years and I’m grateful for the opportunity to give back to Utah’s law enforcement officers and their families.”
Stephen Taylor is a former financial services executive with more than 25 years of experience in the industry. Since leaving his last executive financial services position in 1997, Taylor has begun a second career as an outdoor adventure enthusiast. He is an avid motorcyclist who has completed tours in the Western United States and all over the world. Taylor graduated from Brigham Young University and received a Masters of Business Administration degree from the Harvard Business School. Taylor currently works as a private investor.
“The Utah 1033 Foundation is a remarkable organization with a deep love and respect for our law enforcement officers,” said Taylor. “I’m proud to join this team and work diligently with the Foundation for the benefit of our heroes, the courageous law enforcement men and women who serve us every day.”
Mona Steen, Founder, will step down as interim executive director.
