LAS VEGAS – Nevada Policy has expanded its board of directors with the addition of venture capitalist Guy Nohra and entrepreneur Lisa Song Sutton.
“The experience Lisa and Guy bring to our board will be invaluable as we continue to promote free market solutions and advocate for individual liberties throughout the state,” Nevada Policy President John Tsarpalas said.
Nohra is co-founder of Alta Partners, a leading life sciences venture capital firm which has funded more than 150 companies since 1996. Nohra, who has more than 30 years of experience in life sciences, was named to the Forbes’ Midas List in 2007.
He has served on the boards of 30-plus private and public companies in the United States and Europe. He was chairman of 12 boards and participated on several audit, compensation and compliance committees.
Nohra was a candidate for governor in the 2022 Nevada Republican primary.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in history from Stanford University and an MBA from University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.
Sutton is a real estate investor, entrepreneur and former Congressional candidate for Nevada’s 4th district. With a background in business litigation, Sutton began her career working in a top Las Vegas law firm before launching and scaling several companies across various industries, including real estate, food and shipping retail.
The daughter of a U.S. Air Force veteran of the Vietnam War, Sutton is a strong advocate for the veteran community. She is currently a general partner of The Veteran Fund, a venture capital fund that invests in veteran-led and military spouse-led companies.
Sutton is also a sought-after speaker, sharing her message of leadership, empowerment and action with audiences from the TEDx stage to local schools, encouraging the private sector to become more involved in their communities.
She was the first Miss Nevada of Asian descent and remains actively involved in her community, serving on the boards of StartUpNV, Nevada’s largest statewide business incubator, and the Young President’s Organization’s Las Vegas chapter.
