The Governor’s Office of Economic Development announced the appointment of Roger Killpack to its Board of Directors.

Killpack is from Delta, Utah. Since 1985 he has run his family’s business, Service Drug. This has provided him with a unique understanding of what it takes to operate and grow a business in rural Utah. Under his leadership, Service Drug has added a number of valuable services including home delivery, durable medical equipment sales and billing and a compounding lab. These additions enabled him to grow the business from five employees to more than 40 while expanding into other rural communities in Millard County.

Killpack has devoted his career to community service and volunteerism. He’s served on a number of local and regional advisory boards, served in his church and worked tirelessly to foster economic growth and improve civic life in Delta and the entire state. He attended the University of Utah and graduated Cum Laude in 1985 from the College of Pharmacy. 

“Roger’s leadership, commitment and vision for economic development, especially in our rural communities, will be a valuable addition to the GOED board,” said Val Hale, GOED executive director. “His knowledge and experience building strategic partnerships between business, government and communities will help GOED further our initiatives.” 

Killpack will replace Bevan Wilson on the Board of Directors.

“I’m honored to join the GOED Board of Directors and look forward to working to foster growth in the state,” said Killpack. “I admire the work GOED does and am committed to helping sustain the success we’ve had and developing the strategies needed to help Utah prosper now and for years to come.”
