Top Utah House staffer to depart later this year, and a Salt Lake Chamber vice president will take his place

The Utah House speaker on Monday announced that his closest aide will be leaving later this year for other opportunities and will be replaced by an executive staffer from the Salt Lake Chamber.

Greg Hartley has served as chief of staff for the Utah House of Representatives since 2015, largely under the leadership of former House Speaker Greg Hughes. Hartley says after his resignation, he’ll be looking at some business and consulting opportunities and helping Hughes explore a run for governor.

“He [Hughes] has some key supporters ready to raise money to explore the landscape and should he decide to run I will put all of that together for him, but it is still very early,” Hartley wrote in a text message.
