Mircea Divricean Named CEO of the Year by Utah Business

Mircea Divricean

Mircea Divricean, president and CEO of Kostopulos Dream Foundation, was named a 2018 CEO of the Year by the Utah Business publication. Kostopulos Dream Foundation/Camp Kostopulos is dedicated to improving the lives of people of all abilities through education, recreation and growth opportunities.

Says Divricean: “What Camp K used to be, which was providing life skills and social skills, training and opportunities for people of all abilities, has become a full circle,” he says. “It’s not about learning life skills now, it’s about learning job skills and vocational skills and having the opportunity to be fully independent in your own life and living the best life you can.”
