Kelly Harris, a media consultant for Channel 14, has been named head shaker of the Salt Shakers, the Salt Lake Area Chamber of Commerce's "goodwill ambassadors."
Harris replaces Kenneth O. Hill, spokesman for US WEST Communications, who becomes past head shaker.The Salt Shakers represent the chamber and support business expansion by attending grand openings, ribbon cuttings and ground breakings. They wear white blazers and often welcome dignitaries to Salt Lake City.
Other officers of Salt Shakers are Bob Fowler, Capital City Bank, vice head shaker (vice president); Brad Bertoch, Utah Innovation Center, salty scribe (secretary/treasurer); and Scott Bringhurst, US WEST Direct, salt spreader (trip planner). Ken Plowman of the chamber staff will be the salty dog (chamber staff director).
Harris said the group is planning a goodwill trip to Arizona in April to promote the Salt Lake business community and the state. They also will visit Weber and Utah counties and chambers of commerce in other parts of the state.
