Southwest Transplant Alliance (STA), a nonprofit organ procurement organization (OPO) with a mission of saving lives through organ and tissue donation, announced that Fibbens Addo Koranteng has joined its C-suite leadership as General Counsel.
Koranteng joins STA’s team of more than 350 members across Texas. STA is one of the largest OPOs in the country, serving a diverse population of over 10 million Texans across 89 counties.
“Our ability to achieve STA’s lifesaving mission hinges on how we serve our donor heroes and their families,” said Brad Adams, CEO and President of STA. “Fibbens is a humble and empathetic leader with a strong passion for our work, and we are thrilled to have him join STA. With more than 15 years of legal expertise as a trusted business advisor and dedicated advocate, he adds a wealth of experience to our organizational leadership.”
Koranteng has specialized in business and healthcare law for more than 10 years between his private practice and as an in-house attorney in both Missouri and Texas.
“It’s an honor to join an organization with a group of professionals dedicated to the passionate pursuit of its lifesaving mission,” said Koranteng. “Throughout my career, I’ve understood the vital role legal counsel plays in advancing an organization’s objectives and understand how legal advice and decisions impact my clients’ contractual relationships, federal and state regulatory compliance obligations, employer-employee relationships and resource efficiency. This insight is even more crucial as STA works toward fulfilling the gift of life for its donor heroes and recipients.”
Koranteng holds a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Missouri School of Law and a Bachelor of Science degree from William Woods University. He is licensed to practice law in Missouri, Illinois and Texas.
Koranteng formerly served as an officer and committee member in several St. Louis, Missouri bar associations and as a mentor in the Big Brother Big Sisters program. He has been an invaluable mentor, providing guidance and ongoing support to numerous law students and newly admitted attorneys. Koranteng was born and raised in Ghana, West Africa, and moved to the U.S. in 1997.
