Gov. Sarah Sanders announced Monday (March 13) that she will appoint Susan Peacock of Rogers to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board.

Her term will expire on Jan. 14, 2029, and she will replace Fredrick Black.

Sanders also appointed board member Alex Blass of Rogers to board chairman.

“I am pleased to announce that I am appointing Susan Peacock to serve as a member of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board,” Sanders said. “Her wealth of experience serving Arkansans and Americans in both the public and private sectors makes her the clear choice to serve our state in this capacity. Susan is a respected leader who will be an excellent addition to the Board in overseeing safe regulations and permitting while fostering economic development.”

Peacock is a vice president at Ingeborg Investments with over 15 years of experience across the federal government and private sectors. Before that, she helped launch the Heartland Summit, bringing together leaders from across the country to stimulate economic growth in the American Heartland.

At Booz Allen Hamilton, Peacock worked for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence. She was appointed by President George W. Bush to the National Security Council of the White House and U.S. State Department. She coordinated the evacuation of U.S. citizens from Lebanon during its 2006 military crisis.

Peacock also served as a congressional aide to Majority Leader Dick Armey and Majority Whip Roy Blunt before joining the Bush-Cheney 2004 presidential campaign.

Peacock chairs the board of Mercy Health Foundation Northwest Arkansas and sits on the boards of The New School in Fayetteville and Heartland Action.

“I am deeply humbled and grateful to Governor Sanders for this incredible opportunity to serve the people of Arkansas as an appointee in her administration,” Peacock said.
