How is it possible that “Rotary Connects the World”? Through leadership, of course. And who connects our little part of the world here in Pima County? It’s the Southern Arizona Leadership Council.

Ted Maxwell joined the Southern Arizona Leadership Council (SALC) in April 2013. He assumed the role of President and Chief Executive Officer in July 2018. The nearly 140 CEOs, business and community leaders of SALC are actively involved in creating a vibrant future for the Tucson region and state of Arizona by engaging the critical issues of education, infrastructure, healthcare, governance as well as economic growth and innovation.

Ted’s extensive leadership and command experience have served him well in his role at SALC. During his 34 years of military experience, Ted established himself as a leader capable of motivating and managing a large diverse workforce. Ted retired as a Major General in 2018. His final military position was as the Commander of the Arizona Air National Guard. In that role he oversaw and was responsible for over 2700 Airmen and the operations of units flying the F-16, the KC-135 and the MQ-9 aircraft supporting the Air Force at home and abroad. Ted has extensive experience working with Congress, with government officials and with foreign dignitaries. He has over 4600 flying hours predominately in the F-16.

Ted was a 1984 graduate of the United States Air Force Academy earning a Bachelor’s of Science. He received his Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Arizona in 2014. Additionally, he serves on the Board of Directors for the Arizona Town Hall, the Tucson Hispanic Chamber, the Nova Home Loans Arizona Bowl and Tucson Values Teachers.
