We'll be joined on February 22nd by 2021 Silicon Slopes Hall of Fame Inductees UVU President Astrid S. Tuminez and Vivint Chairman & Founder Todd Pedersen. Come enjoy lunch & learn from two breakthrough leaders of Silicon Slopes.
Astrid S. Tuminez
From abject childhood poverty on a Philippine island to her current role as president of Utah’s largest university, Dr. Astrid S. Tuminez is a huge advocate for (and a proof point of), the ability of education to uplift and transform individuals. As the leader of over 41,000 students and 5,500 professionals at Utah Valley University today, and due to her lifetime of professional success in contributing to global education initiatives, Silicon Slopes is honored to induct Dr. Astrid S. Tuminez into the Silicon Slopes Hall of Fame.
Although known primarily today as the founder and chairman of Vivint Smart Home (the multi-billion-dollar home security company featuring young, door-to-door sales professionals), Todd Pedersen actually struggled with his efforts to convince the owner of a pest control company to allow him sell its services door-to-door on a commission-only basis. Today Pedersen serves as the Chairman of Vivint Smart Home, while being actively involved in such charitable causes as innovation in public education and fighting against childhood starvation. For his lifetime of accomplishments and exemplary leadership, both professionally and personally, Silicon Slopes is honored to induct Todd Pedersen into the Silicon Slopes Hall of Fame.
