Biographical information compliments of Utah Business Hall of Fame
B.Z. Kastler joined Mountain Fuel Supply Corp., now Questar
Corp, in 1952 as the company attorney. He moved on to become the
president, and then chairman, of the natural gas-focused energy
company. Kastler's years of service with the company are marked by
unprecedented customer growth and financial gain.
Kastler was named president of Mountain Fuel in 1972, shortly before
the onset of the Arab Oil embargo, which triggered the longest era of
price increases in the fossil fuel indutry's history. Mountain Fuel
successfully weathered this period and in 1976 when the company was
re-organized into Questar Corp., Kastler was named chairman. He served
as chairman until 1984.
Kastler strived to embody the principles of service, loyalty,
tenacity, and courage in his leadership roles. As the leader of the
company, his objective was, "to treat employees well, to succeed
financially while maintaining a conservative capital structure, to
separate the company's regulated and non-regulated activities, and to
be a good corporate citizen." In the course of his tenure with the
company all of these objectives were achieved.
Kastler was born in Billlings, Montana in 1920. He was educated at
Polytechnic College, the University of Colorado, and graduated Summa
Cum Laude from the University of Utah with a doctorate of law. Kastler
served on numerous boards over the years ranging from corporations to
non-profit organizations, and he has been recognized as an important
civic leader of Salt Lake City.
