With his talented colleagues and strategic partners, he enhanced Utah’s international expansion by assisting Utah firms in connecting with global business opportunities, a method he employs today at Colliers International. The success of Lew’s vision and efforts is shown in Utah’s position as the only state in the nation with positive export growth every year for the past decade, including over $19 billion of merchandise exports in 2012. During the George H.W. Bush administration, Lew served as director general of the U.S. Commercial Service, leading the activities of 1,400 commercial officers at over 100 embassies worldwide and 65 offices throughout the United States.
