Recently, Warren M. Davis was selected as the new executive director of the nonprofit Sonoran Arts League, succeeding Cait Huble, who has moved out of state.

Davis comes to the Sonoran Arts League with more than two decades of nonprofit and arts experience, specializing in external relations, fundraising, board governance, consulting, and volunteer management, according to Jim Bruce, president of the Sonoran Arts League Board of Directors.

With a B.A. from Arizona State University in theater and art history and an M.A. from DePaul University in Chicago in Liberal Studies, Davis brings to his new position an exceptional range of experiences to advance the mission of the League.
“The Board and I feel that Warren’s qualifications and past job experiences fit very well as the League seeks to grow our programs and commitment to the arts and to the residents of Cave Creek/Carefree and the surrounding area in the coming years,” Bruce says. “We are sad to see the departure of executive director Cait Huble whose husband is in the military and has been transferred. We thank Cait for all she did. We are honored and delighted that Warren will be taking the helm.”

Davis’ previous nonprofit experience includes more than 20 years directing complex and effective fundraising projects for large educational and art organizations, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; The Art Institute of Chicago; The Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago; The Joffrey Ballet and Lyric Opera of Chicago; and the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. Most recently Davis has been leading Warren Davis Consulting, LLC, whose clients have included Pawsitive Friendships, ArtWins Arizona, and Ballet Arizona.

The Sonoran Arts League is a nonprofit 501(c)(3), volunteer-based, arts service organization dedicated to actively advancing art, artists and art education with more than 600 members from around the United States and Canada. Home of the annual Hidden in the Hills Studio Tour, the League’s mission is, “To give to the community by promoting art, artists and art education through leadership and service in the belief that an artistic awareness is essential to the well-being of life and our community.”
