The Bureau of Governmental Research has promoted longtime staff member Stephen Stuart to vice president and research director.

He succeeds Peter Reichard, who is leaving for Salt Lake City, where he will be president of the Utah Foundation, a group that says it offers “thorough, well-supported research” on public policy issues and makes “practical, well-reasoned recommendations for policy change” — pretty much what BGR does.

Stuart has been with BGR for 15 years, most recently as senior analyst, and has “extensive knowledge of the organization and the local and regional public policy issues that frame its work,” the group said.

He was the principal author of many BGR reports, including some that earned national recognition by the Governmental Research Association.

“Stephen possesses a unique combination of diligence and skill that has benefited BGR for many years. Those who have encountered him in the field know, as I do, that BGR is lucky to have Stephen in this new role,” said President and CEO Amy Glovinsky.
