Lynne Mayer serves as the Executive Assistant to Utah Inland Port Authority Executive Director, Jack Hedge. She began this role in late 2020 and looks forward to the benefits this project will bring to the state of Utah in the years to come.
Mayer comes to the Port Authority with a wealth of administrative experience, most recently serving as executive assistant to Val Hale at the Governor’s Office of Economic Development for four years. She spent the previous 16 years as the administrative assistant to the chancellor and the Board of Trustees at College of the Canyons in California after working as a financial analyst for Lockheed Martin and a service representative for the Auto Club of Southern California (AAA).
A native of Utah, Mayer graduated from the University of Utah (Go Utes!) with a bachelor’s degree in Recreation and Sports Administration. She married a southern California man and moved to Santa Clarita, California. They raised two daughters and continued to visit family still living in the Salt Lake area during those years.
Mayer and her husband moved back to Utah in 2016, where they enjoy having “real seasons” again and living close to family—especially as they welcomed their first grandchild in the middle of the pandemic. She and her husband enjoy hiking, riding their e-bikes, hanging out with their kids and extended family and love living “Life Elevated” in the beautiful surroundings of Utah.
