Today’s spotlight: Bridget Binsbacher

Title: Director of operations for the Cactus League and vice mayor for the City of Peoria

Mother, wife, businesswoman, volunteer and Peoria’s vice mayor, Binsbacher has been a tireless leader in the community for more than 30 years.  Named one of the Top Five Women in Business Leaders of Arizona and the first employee of the Arizona Cactus League Baseball Association, her dedication to service is unparalleled.  

Source of pride:Serving is an honor. Being elected and trusted to serve the citizens of Peoria is truly the highest professional honor for me. Leading the Cactus League Baseball Association is another exciting and impactful accomplishment that serves our great state of Arizona.”

The personality trait that helped you succeed:Communication and relationship building are critical components to achieving any mission. Honest communication comes with risks and it is hard work, especially when leading others.  Truthfulness can hurt, but it can also heal and inspire. I learned long ago that we are as successful as the relationships and collaborations we foster.”

The personality trait that got you into trouble:Saying ‘yes.’  I want to help everyone!  There are so many wonderful causes and time is scarce.”

Best childhood memory:A couple of days before my sixth Christmas and we didn’t know how or if we would have a tree. We came home late that night and I could see the reflection of the lights through the curtains in our front window. I will never, ever, forget that feeling. It was my Christmas miracle.”
