State Treasurer Marlo Oaks

Marlo Oaks is Utah’s 26th State Treasurer. He was appointed in July 2021 and then elected in November 2022 to finish his predecessor’s term.  Marlo spent most of his career in money management and is one of only two state treasurers with institutional investment management experience.

Because of Marlo's knowledge of the capital markets, he is leading the national charge against an alternate economic system benignly called ESG, short for Environmental, Social, and Governance. He has appeared on national programs, including Glenn Beck, Fox and Friends, and Tucker Carlson, and written articles for The Wall Street Journal, The Daily Wire, and The Daily Mail in the UK, among other outlets.

Marlo graduated with a degree in economics from Brigham Young University and an MBA from the University of California, Los Angeles Anderson. He and his wife, Elaine, reside in Bountiful, Utah and are the parents of six children.
