On March 2, 2015, Timothy Jeffries commenced his blessed vocation when he was appointed the Director of the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) by Governor Doug Ducey.

Prior to his humbling cabinet appointment, Mr. Jeffries served as a senior executive at IHS, Inc. (owner of IHS Jane’s Information Group) where he led several global business optimization efforts over an extraordinary seven-year period. During this time, he also served on numerous corporate and non-profit boards in an array of business and charitable ventures.

In 1981, his beloved big brother, Michael, was murdered in one of the most gruesome murders in Colorado’s history. In 2006, he became deeply involved in crime victims’ support movements. His nearly a decade of humble volunteer service includes: former president for the National Organization for Victims Assistance (NOVA); former national trustee for Parents of Murdered Children (POMC), and former president for Arizona Voice for Crime Victims (AVCV).

Mr. Jeffries earned a Bachelor of Science in political science from Santa Clara University, and was selected “Most Inspirational Player” by his football teammates. He also earned a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, and was selected by his global executive classmates to deliver the valedictory address.

Mr. Jeffries and his wife, Mary Frances, have been married twenty-nine years. They have two beautiful daughters and two wonderful grandchildren. They also have an ever-faithful Labrador named Buddy.
