Susan, a native of Amarillo, Texas, and graduate of UCLA, is entering her eighth season as the sole majority owner of the Sacramento River Cats. Susan and her late husband, Art Savage, purchased the Triple-A franchise and moved the team from Vancouver to the River City in 2000. For 10 years, they co-owned the River Cats, bringing baseball back to Sacramento after a 23-year absence.

In 2012, Susan was nominated to be Minor League Baseball's Female Executive of the Year, and was selected as the Sacramento Businesswoman of the Year. She has also been recognized by the Sacramento Business Journal as one of the Leaders of the Year. She serves on the boards of the California Chamber of Commerce, KVIE Public Television, River Cats Foundation, Crocker Art Museum, and the Sacramento Host Breakfast Committee.

Her vision, as was Art's, is to offer the best fan experience possible and to make customer service the top priority. Susan and the River Cats family strive, on a daily basis, to make Raley Field the number one venue for entertainment in the Sacramento area.

Susan's two sons, Jeff and Brent, are both River Cats employees.
