Newest Board Member

by Don Rodriguez

Carol A. Stewart, associate vice president, Tech Park Arizona, The University of Arizona, has been elected to the Arizona Technology Council’s board of directors. She was elected unanimously to serve a three-year term at the Council’s quarterly board meeting held in July.

“Her leadership, skill set and extensive experience will help advance our agenda, which is designed to grow Arizona’s technology industry and break down barriers that inhibit success,” says Steven G. Zylstra, the Council’s president and CEO. “Carol’s election also pushes us closer to our goal of achieving gender parity on our board, a critical initiative for myself and the Council.”

Stewart is also president of The University of Arizona Center for Innovation, a technology business incubator network serving the university, Tucson and the international community. Previously, she served as the CEO of the Association of University Research Parks, which represents 200 research parks (80% of which are located in the United States and 20% international). In this role, she collaborated with numerous leaders worldwide to build and grow university-related research parks through education, unification and collaboration.

The Council’s board of directors serve an advisory and fiduciary role by representing the interests of the state’s technology industries in the Council’s strategic planning and ongoing operations. The current board includes 33 members representing a diverse set of organizations.
