During General Conference last week The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the entire Presiding Bishopric.
Keith B. McMullin was second counselor in the Presiding Bishopric for 17 years. Now, he is making the transition from General Authority to corporate CEO.
McMullin is replacing Mark Willes as CEO of Deseret Management Corporation. Mcmullin says he’s excited to follow in Willes’ footsteps.
“Mark Willes has a superb sense for strategy and he has a wonderful manner in the way he deals with others who are his colleagues in a particular industry that he is in, and who work with him on a daily basis,” says McMullin.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints owns Deseret Management Corporation, which is a family of businesses including KSL, Deseret News, and Temple Square Hospitality.
“The company’s purpose is to be a trusted voice of light and knowledge to hundreds of millions of people around the world, that’s what we’re about, and that’s what all of us are engaged in, in a vigorous way,” says McMullin.
McMullin also says his time as a general authority has given him valuable skills and abilities he can use in this new position.
“The Presiding Bishopric’s responsibilities are very complex and span a very broad scope of activities from real estate, to buildings, to records, financial affairs and systems, and so all of those experiences in running those operations have been helpful experiences in preparation for this undertaking,” says McMullin.
McMullin says he is most excited about executing the strategies that Willes put in place and he also says he looks forward to seeing the influence companies like Deseret News can have around the world.
