Miguel Cruz Joins Board of Directors of Intermountain Centers for Human Development

[Tucson, Arizona] June 10, 2024. Miguel Cruz has joined the Board of Directors of Intermountain Centers for Human Development, Southern Arizona’s largest nonprofit organization. Cruz was officially inaugurated on June 5th, and joins a prestigious group of influential names that includes Brandt Hazen, Brett Rustand, Mimi Coomler, MaryAnn Penczar, and Gregory Bryson, among others.

Cruz is a multi-disciplinary international business professional who has gained experience in developing and executing strategies in different industries for more than thirty-eight years. The breadth of his professional acumen has been gained in the areas of bioscience, financial services, healthcare, branding, marketing, and media. He earned a degree in Veterinary Medicine and Zoo-Technique in Mexico while working to become the youngest epidemiologist for a bi-national program (US and Mexico) implementing eradication strategies in Mexico and Central America, and the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization program in Rome, Italy, and Tripoli, Libya.

Miguel’s past board member experiences include being part of the Women’s Foundation of the State of Arizona’s Board of Trustees, board member for Tu Nidito, Children Services, being the Past President of the Board of the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation (SAAF), Past President of the American Advertising Federation Tucson Chapter, and Treasurer of the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

Cruz is currently part of the executive team at Tucson Federal Credit Union where he leads the visual branding, strategic marketing and community engagement as its Vice President of Brand and Community Engagement. 

“Intermountain’s mission aims high: to transform the lives of Arizona’s most vulnerable and at-risk populations,” said Rose Lopez, the organization’s Chief Executive Officer. “Nearly all of the individuals we serve every year qualify as low-income, setting a momentous task before us. We need the brightest minds both on the front lines and guiding the vision of our work. We are fortunate to have Miguel joining our Board and know with his help, we will do great things for the communities who need us most.”

Every year Intermountain and its affiliates, which include Pinal Hispanic Council, Family Service Agency, and Community Partners, serve more than 20,000 patients across the state of Arizona for a variety of health needs including primary care, mental health, autism, substance use, homelessness, foster care, youth development including workforce readiness training, and more. Intermountain celebrated its 50th anniversary last year.
