(SALT LAKE CITY, UT – July 10, 2023) Utah Business Magazine has bestowed the Utah’s 40 Women Over 40 Award to Merry Osborne, Director of Client Experience and Marketing at Tanner LLC.

The three pillars which the 40 Over 40 Committee reviewed when choosing the list of women was age, industry, and race. The committee focused on these criteria because they saw it as important benchmarks to open up what representation meant in terms of multiple races, backgrounds, and diversity of thought.  They sought to honor a community of women who, through uplifting intentions, are making a difference in their communities. Honorees will be recognized at a luncheon gala at the Grand America on September 23, 2023.
