PHOENIX, AZ – Governor Doug Ducey has named a powerful lobbyist and a philanthropist to the Arizona Board of Regents. The appointments of former APS lobbyist, Jessica Pacheco and former Microsoft executive, Bob Herbold, were made to fill spots left by Kathryn Hackett King and Karrin Taylor Robson.

I know they will be excellent additions to the Board of Regents.”

Pacheco runs the Horizon Strategies lobbying firm.

Herbold has actually demonstrated an interest in higher education as the President of The Herbold Foundation, which provides scholarships to master’s and PhD students in the areas of engineering and computer science at several universities. He is the Managing Director of The Herbold Group and serves on the Board of Trustees of the Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
