New Year, New ASBA!

by Arizona Small Business Association

With exciting additions to staff, the launch of several new programs and a rebrand in the works, ASBA is taking the expression, “new year, new me,” to a whole other level!

ASBA is excited to announce that Jack Lunsford, after serving as “Interim” for five months, has officially been appointed President and CEO. “Jack is a visionary thought leader and change agent,” says Jason Trujillo, ASBA’s 2017 board chair. “There’s no question that Jack’s record as a well-known business, public policy and community leader throughout the Valley and state will greatly benefit through his outstanding leadership.”

Lunsford is in good company as ASBA has also welcomed Angelia Hill, vice president of Marketing & Business Solutions; Genesis Garcia, administrative coordinator; and Ashley Vizzerra, Member Support & Programs manager, to the team. Title promotions have been awarded to the following staff as well:

  • Debbie Hann — Chief Operating Officer
  • Carol Mangen — Vice President Partnerships & Programs
  • Robin Duncan — Senior Director Business Development
  • Nicci Latino — Events & Communications Manager
  • Jeanne Quinn Lowing — Member Services Coordinator (Southern AZ) 

The team has been hard at work developing and implementing new programs that provide relevant, dynamic and innovative opportunities in education, mentoring and networking. ASBA recently launched Mindshare: Coaching from the Classroom, which seeks to provide small-business owners the opportunity to learn from experts in a variety of areas pertaining to business and personal development. Next to come will be Protégé: Smart Business Mentoring, a series in collaboration with Kolbe Corp.

ASBA has been undergoing a major transformation, the results of which should prove very exciting for members of the small-business community. More to come on the rebrand soon; stay tuned!
