Mark Marsh - North Summit Regional Chair
Chuck Engar - South Summit Regional Chair
Chuck was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, graduating from Skyline High School with the first full graduating class at the newly constructed school. After a six month stint with the US Army Reserves, Chuck spent 2 ½ years in Norway, returned home and graduated a few years later from the University of Utah with a degree in Political Science. He then entered graduate school at Brigham Young University with the intent of earning a Masters of Public Administration – envisioning himself someday being a city manager somewhere.
After one completed semester, his plans were sidetracked when he successfully applied for and received an appointment as a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. After three months of training in Washington DC, Chuck served in the Kansas City, Missouri and Minneapolis field offices, and spent the last four years of the grand experience with the FBI in a resident agency in Pierre, South Dakota. He then returned to Salt Lake City, accepting a position as Special Agent with the Utah Attorney General, in a newly formed white collar crime unit.
Three years later, Chuck moved into the private sector and began a 28 year career with Abbott Laboratories, initially as the Security Manager in a Salt Lake manufacturing facility (then called Sorenson Research). His focus broadened as he moved into Human Resources, eventually serving as the site Manager of HR in a large manufacturing facility in Morgan Hill, California. During his time with Abbott Laboratories, Chuck and his family lived in Salt Lake, Chicago and Morgan Hill. He eventually received a promotion back to his original area of expertise when we became the Area Manager for Global Security for the Western United States and Asia/ Pacific, and was relocated back to Salt Lake City.
He retired in 2009, and now enjoys his life with his wife, Kristie and on the road bicycling about four thousand miles every year. Chuck and Kristie, about to celebrate 50 years of marriage next year, raised five children who all have successful careers and great families. They currently have 18 grandchildren, and don’t believe they are done yet.
Other than voting over the years, Chuck is new to the political scene. His election to the South Summit Regional Chair position is his first experience in this arena, and he hopes his life’s experiences in the public and private sectors can contribute to the Republican party’s urgently needed growth in Summit County.
