ST. GEORGE – In a continuing effort to connect its members to the community, the St. George Chamber of Commerce will host a luncheon on Wednesday at the Courtyard by Marriott. The luncheon will feature City of St. George Mayor Jon Pike, sharing his vision for the future and a state of the city report.
Pike’s address will include updates on the city’s information services, roads and projects, the parks, the Electric Theater, SwitchPoint, and information on the proposed county Recreation, Arts and Parks tax.
Pike was raised in Salt Lake City and received a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Utah and a Master of Business Administration from Westminster College. He has worked in several positions with Intermountain Healthcare since 1990.
One of the highlights of Pike’s career has been working as project manager for the planning and construction of Dixie Regional Medical Center on River Road, which opened in 2003. He currently works as the regional operations director for SelectHealth, the health insurance division of Intermountain Healthcare.
Pike first served on the St. George City Council until being sworn in as mayor in 2014. He serves on the boards of Dixie State University, the Childrens Justice Center, Dixie Applied Technology College, and as chair of the 5th District Judicial Nominating Commission.
