Utah Business CEO Of The Year Honoree


Evan Walker

Founder & CEO | Route

Who inspires you most? Why?

Walt Disney is a huge inspiration to me. He not only was able to see things before they were created but also knew how to execute his vision in a way that emotionally resonated with people and really set the bar for innovators around the world. The Disney brand created a world that is fully immersive, nostalgic, and based on storytelling, something I strive for every day in what I create. 

If you weren’t a CEO, what would you do?

I’d be an inventor. What gets me out of bed every morning is a passion to go create things that no one has ever experienced before. Being able to deliver a product that is not only built for everyone, but something they find they cannot live without is what really drives me.
