Bee-lieving in the power of partnership

The state seal of Utah famously depicts a beehive, a symbol of industry and cooperation. Industry and cooperation also have been the hallmarks of the long-standing relationship between the FTC and the Utah Department of Commerce’s Division of Consumer Protection. That’s why we’re proud to announce that the Division is the latest recipient of the FTC Bureau of Consumer Protection Partner Award.

FTC presents BCP Partner Award to Utah Division of Consumer ProtectionUnder the leadership of Francine Giani, Executive Director of the Utah Department of Commerce, and Daniel O’Bannon, Director of the Department’s Division of Consumer Protection, the Division has been a devoted champion for Utah’s consumers, advancing effective enforcement and outreach in their state. And they’ve been an invaluable partner with the FTC in furthering our shared enforcement and outreach initiatives.

The list of their contributions is impressive:

Like the beehive on their state seal, the Utah Department of Commerce’s Division of Consumer Protection is a hub of cooperative productivity. But like the residents of that hive, injure Utah consumers and these folks can sting. For what we’ve learned from our Utah colleagues and for what we’ve been able to achieve together, we’re honored to present them with the BCP Partner Award.
