PHOENIX, AZ (November 18, 2011) - After engineering a successful turnaround as CEO of Arizona Small Business Association, Donna Davis announces today, she will not be renewing her contract, which ends December 31, 2011. She will continue to lead the organization and assist with the onboarding of a new CEO through January 31, 2012. ASBA’s Board of Directors has formed a search committee to begin the process of finding her successor.

"It has been a privilege to lead ASBA and to serve the small business community. I have enjoyed advancing ASBA, helping our members, and connecting with organizations throughout Arizona and the nation,” Davis stated. "With the completion of ASBA’s turnaround, the time has come to recruit new leadership to advance the organization.”

"During this turnaround period, in an extremely challenging economy, Donna has fulfilled every goal set with the Board of Directors,” said Lynn Paige, Chairwoman of ASBA’s Board of Directors. "She has worked with the Board to capitalize on all her amazing talents and leaves behind a legacy of excellence for us all to follow,” she added.

"Donna has done amazing things for ASBA members and small business owners around Arizona. Under her direction, the association reinvented itself and more than doubled its membership. We wish her well in her new endeavors and look forward to a smooth transition,” remarked ASBA Board Vice Chairman Joe Higgins.

In the last three years, the organization’s membership has grown from 2,700 to over 11,000 business members, the financials are in the strongest condition in the organization’s 40-year history, the staff is extremely competent and dedicated, and the culture is energized.

"As a change agent, my role is completed, and it is time for me to entertain other professional opportunities. In the meantime, it is business as usual,” added Davis.
