You're invited to this year's Business Awards Banquet on Thursday, September 28th at the Davis Conference Center.
Every year the Davis Chamber Awards Banquet is the highlight for the business community in Davis County. And the apex of the evening we will honor the Davis County businesses that are recognized in four categories. We are proud to announce the finalists for our 2023 Business Awards:
2023 Legacy Award Recipient
Gary Petersen, managing partner of Adams & Petersen CPAs
, will be honored with the Legacy Award.
Gary is a founding partner and is the managing partner, of Adams & Petersen CPAs in the Clearfield/Layton area.

The firm is a full-service accounting firm for individuals and businesses from start-ups to large corporations with multi-state presence.

He has served on the executive board for many years and has had the role of Chairman of the Board twice. He has been involved in many important aspects of the chamber, including supporting the Legacy Highway to creating Davis Cable 17, a PEG cable channel owned by the Davis chamber, to being past chairman of the Transportation committee and participating in the Lakesiders, the chamber’s ambassador group. He has witnessed and been an active part of its growth in size and influence.
Gary is currently in his twenty-second year as a council member in West Point City, where he serves as the Mayor Pro-Tem. He is in his nineteenth year of service on the North Davis Fire District Board and has served as chairman or vice chairman of the board for a total of 16 years. Gary serves as the Treasurer on the board of Associated Builders and Contractors of Utah and teaches continuing education and licensing courses.

These are only a few of the ways Gary serves in our community.
Gary’s hobbies include spending time with his wife Carolyn, four kids, and six grandchildren, gardening, and occasionally cycling on the quiet roads of West Point. He recently participated in the LOTOJA bike race for the seventh time.
2023 Chamber Choice Award Recipient
This year we would like to give a Chamber Choice award to someone who has gone above and beyond in assisting us in fulfilling our Chamber mission. While we have so many wonderful people who volunteer and do so much good, we would like to recognize Cindee Jessop for her extremely hard work and dedication on behalf of the Chamber. Cindee chairs our very strong Business Alliance group, is a member of our Women in Business Executive Committee, and volunteers on our Golf Tournament Committee, among other things. She is always willing to help and adds so much to our organization. We will be honoring Cindee at our Awards Banquet. Please join us in congratulating Cindee!
Congratulations to Gary, Cindee, and all of our finalists! We are thrilled to have the opportunity to honor our Legacy Award recipient and so many great businesses in Davis County and to recognize the importance of the business community to our economy and the quality of life of its residents.
