In 2018, Roman was one of eleven attorneys selected by Utah Business Magazine to receive the publication’s inaugural “Corporate Counsel Award,” which recognized “exceptional in-house counselors who exhibit excellence within their roles, model high ethical standards and have a track record of successful outcomes for their organizations.” Roman has also been routinely recognized by Utah Business Magazine as a “Legal Elite” in the area of in-house counsel.
Roman holds both a Bachelor of Science in Accounting (’05) and Master of Business Administration (’06) from Westminster College’s Gore School of Business, and a Juris Doctor from the West Virginia University College of Law (’09).
