sPower, a leading renewable energy provider headquartered in Utah, announced that its CEO, Ryan Creamer, has been named one of Utah Business Forty Under 40 for 2016. For the 14th year, the magazine’s annual program recognizes Utah’s young, up-and-coming professionals – from serial entrepreneurs to technology innovators to non-profit leaders – who are shaping industry trends and molding the future.
“Today we’re honoring Utah’s rising business luminaries who have accomplished a lifetime’s worth of success – all by the age of 40,” said Sam Urie, publisher of Utah Business. “They are barely at a mid-point in their careers yet they’ve already proven that they dare to aim for the stars.”
After culling through hundreds of nominations, Utah Business judging panel, comprised of previous Forty Under 40 honorees, selected this year’s list of deserving recipients based on their proven records for making a difference both with their careers and with their community service.
“I continue to be amazed by the tremendous achievements made by great people in our state. I am deeply honored to be included amongst this group of Utah leaders,” said Creamer. “While this award recognizes individual achievement, it also celebrates the hard work and talent of my sPower team and my family. I am grateful for all that they do and all of their support.”
sPower is a clean energy power company that Creamer co-founded in 2012. Following are sPower 2015 highlights accomplished under Creamer’s leadership:
