Gov. Jan Brewer has appointed two new members to the Arizona Board of Regents.

Ronald Shoopman has been appointed to replace outgoing Regent Dennis DeConcini, whose term expired in January.

Meanwhile, William Ridenour will succeed outgoing regent Anne Mariucci.

Shoopman has been president of the Southern Arizona Leadership Council since 2004.

Ridenour is a founder and managing partner of a Phoenix law firm where he has worked since 1980.

Both men will serve eight-year terms, pending confirmation by the state Senate.
