In March 2017, Salt River Project (SRP) executive, Lori Singleton, was named the president and CEO for Arizona Forward, a non-profit sustainability organization driving major initiatives in the state as it relates to quality of life and economic vitality. With over 50 years of experience, Arizona Forward’s 150+ plus member organizations share a common goal of preserving a balance between growth, environmental quality, and the long-term sustainability of the state.

Singleton enjoyed an almost 40-year career with SRP where she held numerous positions, but primarily focused her efforts on sustainability and environmental initiatives. Singleton was also an Arizona Forward board member for many years, which gave her an in-depth perspective of statewide sustainability needs and opportunities. As the new leader of Arizona Forward and a seasoned business executive, Singleton is implementing an aggressive plan to make large-scale, tangible progress in areas that matter most to Arizona such as water supplies, clean air, smart transportation, forest health, urban waterways and healthy communities. She has also served as the Board Chair for Audubon Arizona, and currently serves on the Board for Liberty Wildlife.

She is passionate about animals (including her doodle Stella), cooking, wine, all environmental issues, ballroom and country dancing (with her partner Fred), being mom to a daughter and son-in-law (Lindsey and Tony) and Aunt Lori to 30+ family members!
