THE MOST INFLUENTIAL WOMEN IN ARIZONA BUSINESS

SANDRA HUDSON

President TrustBank Arizona Hudson is CEO of Trust and Wealth Management and president of TrustBank Arizona. BEST DECISION: “Confidence in my vision. I do not know the words ‘can’t’ or ‘no.’ I was able to take my vision of a boutique group of professional wealth advisors who work in a holistic fashion with customized solutions and no minimums to TrustBank, a 104-year-old bank, just over four years ago. We were recently named to Chambers 2016 ‘Top High Net Wealth Advisors in Arizona.’” SURPRISING FACT: “I would rather be baiting a fish hook instead of balancing the books. I’m a low-maintenance mountain girl who enjoys horseback riding, fishing, hiking, camping and fresh air.”

JENNIFER KAPLAN

Owner Evolve Public Relations and Marketing Kaplan started Evolve in 2010. With clients ranging from restaurants, retail, entertainment, real estate, medical, legal, global and international companies and nonprofit organizations, the company has grown to become a premier firm. BEST DECISION: “The smartest professional decision I made was to venture on my own in starting my firm. It was extremely difficult at the time, however, with the support of my clients, many still with me eight-plus years later, I realize it was the best thing I did to grow personally and professionally.” SURPRISING FACT: “I love watching all sports and following different tournaments and athletes. I even have the ESPN app on my phone.”
