Former Congressman Ben McAdams founded CGI to focus on this type of bridge building and problem solving. McAdams is a seventh generation Utahn raised in a family of eight. That’s where he learned hard work, honesty and duty to community. He further honed those skills as a Utah State Senator, Mayor and Member of the United States Congress. In his public service, he brought Republicans and Democrats together to get things done like addressing homelessness, forming public-private partnerships to improve education and health outcomes in the community and promote evidence-based decision-making at all levels of government.
