The Sandoval Economic Alliance board of directors has a new chairman, as well as four new members.
J.R. Allison, vice president for Old Republic Title Insurance Co., was appointed last week as chairman for the 2015-16 fiscal year. Allison has been a member of the board since the alliance began in 2014 and succeeds Joe Sierra, Rio Rancho market president for Century Bank.

The four new members are Michelle Franks, CFO at Studio Southwest Architects Inc.; Wade Jackson, general counsel at New Mexico Economic Development Department; Jamie Silva-Steele, president and CEO of UNM Sandoval Regional Medical Center; and Angela Ward, interim hospital administrator at Presbyterian Rust Medical Center. The four will bring the board to 11 members.

Silva-Steele and Ward join the board as the alliance moves into its second year with a focus on health initiatives. Both serve in leading roles on the new Sandoval County Health Care Collaborative, which aims to bring health care jobs and education, to the county.

In a statement, Alliance President and CEO Jami Grindatto said he is “thrilled to have new board members join and grow our board of directors. I’m looking forward to working with these talented individuals to help us recruit and grow businesses in Sandoval County.”
