Sarah Suggs Cheek, the newly appointed president and CEO of the O'Connor House, has extensive fundraising and marketing experience that "will benefit the organization tremendously," said Steve Savage, chairman of the O'Connor House board.

Mr. Savage, Managing Partner of Ballard Spahr's Phoenix office, said Ms. Cheek's experience will help the organization build on its successful programs such as the Distinguished Speaker Series, which she established. “Over the last year we have laid the foundation for our organization and Sarah’s leadership will take us to the next level,” Mr. Savage said.

The O'Connor House is a nonprofit organization that supports the legacy and vision of retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor to promote civil dialogue leading to civic action.
