The directory above links to many Utah local and regional professional service providers as an extension of our directory for the larger US Mountain region, following the same structure as our global contact directories.  Our regional directories also include economic development organizations and government offices related to this field, such as our Utah Directory of Economic Development Organizations.

The organizations relevant to this selective directory include :

  •  corporate real estate firms, REIT's, and commercial project developers
  •  architects, engineers, design build, construction and project management firms
  •  business location or "site selection consultants" and incentives consultants
  •  tax and legal professionals
  •  banks, project finance specialists, and venture capitalists
  •  logistics specialists and industrial or office relocation services
  •  human resources specialists - executive search, recruitment, training, etc.

This is a "long list" of many firms which may be involved in the planning, development, and ongoing support of business investment projects in their specialties, including the support of foreign direct investment projects (FDI) into the area.  The focus of our work relates to major offices, factories, and distribution centers rather than retail and residential projects.

We provide personal introductory referrals to such contacts and other assistance according to the direct investment project interests of the corporate executives and business advisors we serve.
