Jack Lunsford Named President & CEO of the Arizona Small Business Association

Posted By Nicci Latino, Arizona Small Business Association, Thursday, December 15, 2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  December 14, 2016

CONTACT: Jack Lunsford

(602) 306-4000

JACK LUNSFORD NAMED PRESIDENT & CEO AT

THE ARIZONA SMALL BUSINESS ASSOCIATION

 

The Arizona Small Business Association (ASBA) has removed the “Interim” title from Jack Lunsford and named him President & CEO.  Lunsford, a former ASBA Board member, has served in the interim role since July.

“Jack has taken his commitment to Arizona’s small businesses and combined it with his contagious energy to bring an excitement and attitude to the Board and staff that ASBA hasn’t seen in many years,” noted ASBA Board Chair Nick Petra. “He has provided ASBA with stability and continuity through this transition and he will now lead our growth and expansion.”

The federal government defines small business in the U.S. as those businesses having less than 500 employees.  That means that 97% of the businesses in Arizona are small businesses, and ASBA represents those businesses as well as major companies.

“We are reshaping and rebuilding ASBA to be more relevant for our members and to provide them with more innovative services,” Lunsford said.  “We intend to be the voice of small business in Arizona providing leadership, services, and advocacy throughout the state.”

Non-profit leadership is a very familiar role for Lunsford, who has served as President & CEO WESTMARC, the Greater Maricopa Foreign Trade Zone, and the Arizona Community College Coordinating Council.  While with WESTMARC he was recognized by The Phoenix Business Journal as one of the Valley’s “50 Powerful People” and one of its “Most Admired CEOs & Top Level Executives”, and he received the ASU West Visionary Award jointly with WESTMARC.

“There’s no question about Jack’s record as a well-known business, public policy, and community leader throughout the valley and state”, remarked Jason Trujillo, ASBA’s 2017 Chair.  “He is a visionary thought leader and change agent and ASBA will greatly benefit from his outstanding leadership as we move forward creating a new ASBA with more and better benefits and services for our members and our community.” 

Lunsford’s honors include being a recipient of the Arizona Capitol Times “Leaders in Public Policy ‘Unsung Hero’ Award and the Marvin D. “Swede” Johnson National Achievement Award for Outstanding State Relations in Higher Education.  He was also named one of the inaugural “West Valley ‘24’ Movers & Shakers” by West Valley Magazine.

A Phoenix native, Lunsford has more than 40 years’ experience in the private, public, and non-profit sectors. In 2014 he served as Special Assistant for Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, supporting him on economic development, education, transportation, healthcare, and homelessness issues.  He is also the founding director of the Office of Government Relations and External Affairs for the Maricopa Community Colleges where for 20 years he was the chief policy and political advisor to the Chancellor and Governing Board.  

Lunsford has twice held elected office:  as Coconino County Assessor (youngest in state history) and as a board member of West-MEC (a Maricopa County JTED school district). He is twice an Arizona banking officer, was a rural Arizona radio station executive, and is a former account executive for Mountain Bell/AT&T.  Lunsford remains President of The Lunsford Group, an Arizona small business.
