About Deborah Bayle

As a community leader and business influencer for nearly four decades, Deborah made a significant impact in her 16 years as President and CEO of United Way of Salt Lake. During her tenure, Deborah courageously led the transformation of the organization to focus on changing the odds for kids and families in our communities. In 2015, the Board of Directors recognized her leadership by naming a scholarship fund in her honor to benefit students whose lives have been directly impacted by the organization’s collective impact work.
