RANKING

ARIZONA


“We love Ranking Arizona because we have acquired new clients from the exposure it provides. Being listed within the top firms in our category has given us credibility with business owners and their professional advisors. It works.” Jim Afinowich, principal, IBG Fox & Fin Financial Group

“We subtlety promote our ranking in our marketing materials. Because it is the voice of our customers, we feel it carries weight. I know when I’m looking for someone to do business with, I appreciate knowing the experience other customers have had and Ranking Arizona gives potential customers a great barometer for analyzing the customer experience.”

“How the market perceives us and our reputation are paramount to our existence. We believe ranking No. 1 shows we live our values of integrity, trust, collaboration, respect, teamwork, quality and passion every day, allowing us to continue to grow and provide outstanding service to our customers.” Lisa McFate, employee-owner, Wilson Electric

Robert Anderson, CEO, Prisma

Ranking Arizona helps in our recruitment of employees and is an important component in creating positive morale. In addition, it adds credibility with everyone we do business with—including clients, prospective clients, vendor partners and even family members of our staff.” Bill Lavidge, CEO, Lavidge

“The Ranking Arizona recognition is shared with our employees as acknowledgement of the incredible impact they are making in the lives of our customers, as well as in business proposals and marketing collateral. It is a great addition to our overall value proposition as an award-winning and trusted healthcare partner.” David A. Dexter, president and CEO, Sonora Quest Laboratories

“Ranking Arizona has been a tremendous tool for us that has given our institution immediate credibility as a small local community bank in Arizona. We utilize the recognition with both new and existing clients to strengthen our relationships.” Mike Thorell, president and CEO, Pinnacle Bank

“The Ranking Arizona recognition has led to multiple project awards, peer recognition and, most importantly, the recognition affords each member of the Team an unparalleled sense of pride and the organization as a whole enjoys a stronger morale.”

“The exposure from being listed in Ranking Arizona over the past several years has offered many benefits for our firm. Gensler’s name published at the top of the list has provided tangible dividends such as unsolicited calls for new business opportunities, as well as the attraction of top new talent to our firm.”

“Ranking Arizona has helped our company by bringing in more new patients to our practice. We have patients from all over Phoenix coming to see us and have had people reach out to us to become a patient of our practice because they have seen us in Ranking Arizona.”

John Brunia, president, Spectra Electrical Services

Beth Harmon-Vaughan, managing director, Gensler

Melissa “Mini” Waxman, practice administrator, Douglas Family Dentistry

elcome to the 22nd annual edition of Ranking Arizona: The Best of Arizona Business. This publication is the result of the largest business opinion poll taken in Arizona. Each business category is selected by the staff of AZ Big Media based upon the business and leisure activities of Arizona’s business community. Determining who is best in any given industry is challenging, so we decided to turn to the residents of Arizona for the answers. Ranking Arizona is based purely on opinion. A company’s revenue and number of employees shouldn’t be the only criteria used to judge the best. Instead, participants who voted based their opinions on the quality of products, services and people. We also wanted to know which companies you would recommend doing business with and pass that information on to our readers. The bulk of voting takes place via our website (AZBigMedia.com). Our userfriendly website includes more than 20,000 businesses in more than 250 different business and leisure subcategories. Readers can go to the website and vote for their favorites in each sub-category. The votes are tallied each quarter then cleared out with the final tally in August. The results are then assembled and ranked according to their total number of votes. With a year-round visibility, Ranking Arizona is kept and referred to time and time again. We hope you will use this directory as a reference to help guide your businesses and families throughout the year. If you would like your business represented on our Ranking Arizona website for voting, simply log on to our site and follow the simplw steps to nominate a company. My thanks to the staff of Az Big Media, advertisers and to all those who voted and made Ranking Arizona such an important part of Arizona’s business community. Congratulations to those who made our list. You truly represent “The Best of Arizona Business!” Sincerely,

We surf the Internet. We swim in magazines. The Internet is exhilarating. Magazines are enveloping. The Internet grabs you. Magazines embrace you. The Internet is impulsive. Magazines are immersive. And both media are growing. Barely noticed amidst the thunderous Internet clamor is the simple fact that magazine readership has risen over the past several years. Even in the age of the Internet, even among the groups one would assume are most singularly hooked on digital media, the appeal of magazines is growing. Think of it this way: during the life of Google, magazine readership actually increased 11 percent. What it proves, once again, is that a new medium doesn’t necessarily displace an existing one. Just as movies didn’t kill radio. Just as TV didn’t kill movies. An established medium can continue to flourish so long as it continues to offer a unique experience. And, as readers’ loyalty and growth demonstrate, magazines do. Which is why people aren’t giving up swimming, just because they also enjoy surfing.

orthwest Christian School is a private Christian school with a mission to provide an educational program which upholds high standards of scholastic and behavioral excellence and furnishes instruction in Bible-based Christian faith. It is Northwest Christian School’s greatest honor to enable students to develop a Christian world view and prepare them to fulfill their God-ordained roles.

Private Schools

STRENGTH OF STAFF: “With a deep and enduring commitment to God’s word and Christian world view, Northwest Christian’s staff and faculty are all highly professional and very compassionate. Our students truly feel valued as they see their teachers investing within each of them uniquely.” IMPACT OF 2019 TRENDS: “I earnestly believe that the more our state can invest in school choice, the better we will all perform. School choice drives competition, which results in families being able to discern and choose which schools are a best match for the unique needs of their children. In Arizona, we have thriving district and charter schools, wonderful options for home schooling, and a very diverse private education community. So many choices can make it challenging for individual schools — but it’s that challenge that serves as the fuel to the engine of continuous improvement for all schools.”

The program is a collaboration of both labor and management, which work together to provide the highest quality training for apprentices in the electrical trade and setting the standards for 8,000 hours of monitored, on-the-job training assignments with its sponsoring employers, complementing more than 900 hours of related classroom training. COMPANY STRENGTHS: “The standards we set for the electrical contracting industry provide for the highest quality training available. Selected apprentices are afforded the opportunity to earn a state certificate and college credit that can be applied to an associate’s degree. The program is a viable alternative to the traditional college track, with an ‘earn while you learn’ focus.” OUTLOOK FOR 2019: “2019 is shaping up to be a significant year in employment opportunities within the industry. We anticipate growth within the training program, and the industry overall.”

Restaurants: Fusion/Eclectic

W

ith his engaging smile, rich, exotic voice and culinary wizardry, Chef Razz Kamnitzer is the charismatic soul of this hip restaurant. Razz’s is small and sleek. A gallery of contemporary art and a bustling, open kitchen transport diners to the energetic experience of big-city dining. The cuisine is based on the refined French technique Razz employs as a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. The chef is a native of Venezuela, with a heritage spanning Europe. Razz offers international classics, bouillabaisse, osso bucco, escargot bourguignonne, as well as inspired contemporary creations such as macadamia nutencrusted mahi mahi served with a tropical fruit relish and a garlic sauce. Dine at the island kitchen with a host of regular guests and chat with Razz as he and his team flambé, sauté and slice it up. IMPACT OF 2019 TRENDS: “Social Media. I don’t really know whether to say it’s a trend or an issue. The electricity that social media ignites is exciting. It’s infringement on the experience of dining can feel daunting at times. In fine dining, we used to frown at cell phones out in the restaurant. Now, cell phones are regularly out and conversations at those tables have gone silent. Do you have to follow your dining partner on Snapchat to converse over dinner? ”

ennings Haug Cunningham’s Environmental Law & Litigation lawyers have had an integral role through the years in developing environmental policy in Arizona, serving on the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality WQARF Advisory Board, the Underground Storage Tank Policy Commission, and many other environmental boards and commissions. Jennings Haug Cunningham has also been involved in the development of new and revised environmental laws, programs, and regulations. The firm’s involvement with and understanding of environmental policy at the state and federal level helps it effectively advise its clients. SURPRISING FACT: “The emphasis we place on thinking outside the box. Our work takes us far beyond the typical attorney tasks of drafting memos and briefs and advocating before agencies or tribunals. We aim to know more about the history of and conditions at a site or property than others. We get to know a site inside and out, including how the site and the client are viewed by regulatory agencies and the community. We then use that information to develop winning strategies that the client often has not contemplated previously.”

Law Firms: Real Estate

wo years in, MacQueen & Gottlieb (M&G) is making waves throughout the real estate law profession. M&G is undoubtedly a top-tier real estate firm featuring two of the top legal minds in the business. They are young, with the named partners 40 and 33, respectively, and are shaking things up not just with what they’re doing, but how they’re doing it. It all stems from the relaxed atmosphere perpetuated by Patrick MacQueen and Benjamin Gottlieb, the quality of whose legal minds is matched only by the loose nature of their constant banter and the light atmosphere of the No. 1 firm they have created. COMPANY STRENGTHS: “Our strength lies in our people. We’re small, but in addition to the named partners, our legal and support staff has a wealth of knowledge about real estate law that belies the firm’s young age. We work hard to bring in people who fit for our unique culture and it’s paying off.” IMPACT OF 2019 TRENDS: “Bad fix and flips are a huge issue. The market is very hot now and seemingly everyone is trying to flip homes. With prices increasing like they have, there are people doing things on the cheap to put money in their pocket fast. That leads to a lot of legal issues.”

Physical Therapy

oothills Sports Medicine Physical Therapy was established in 2000 by Michael Basten, physical therapist and CEO. Since 2000, the Foothills brand has expanded to include Foothills Sports Medicine Physical Therapy in Phoenix and Prescott Valley, and ProActive Physical Therapy in Tucson. At Foothills, experts believe that they have a unique opportunity to impact the lives of their patients through compassionate, individualized and hands-on physical therapy and rehabilitation. IMPACT OF 2019 TRENDS: “In 2019, we hope to educate the public about the benefits of direct access, which means that patients can come directly to our clinics; opposed to the old model of going through medical physicians. As doctors of physical therapy, there is no one more qualified to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal dysfunctions than a physical therapist. Visiting a physical therapist first has many benefits – including a lower probability of having an opioid prescription, advanced imaging services, or an emergency department visit.” IMPACT OF NO. 1 RANKING: “It is a tremendous honor to be ranked as Best Physical Therapy Provider for the fourth year in a row because this means we are recognized by the public and our peers as delivering the highest quality care for our patients.”

Vein Treatment Centers

C

enter for Venous Disease (CVD) was established in 2005 and is the No. 1 vein center in the Southwest. Regionally, CVD is No. 1 with offices in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, and has earned national recognition from its peer group, societies in its specialty and — more importantly — its patients. In addition, almost 27 percent of CVD’s patients made the mistake of going to a different clinic, only to come to CVD later with worsening symptoms and repeat procedures. The disease is progressive. Delaying treatment is a costly mistake. IMPACT OF 2019 TRENDS: “Patients need to be seen by a reputable and experienced doctor. We’ve heard horror stories from patients who have been seen by other providers. Patients also need an insurance advocate who adheres to the insurance policy (rules) for vein treatment. Most patients don’t realize they are on the ‘hook’ for payment if the doctor doesn’t follow them.” OUTLOOK FOR 2019: “CVD has won this award for six years. We want to thank our patients for their loyalty and trust. This is a testament to our staff and doctor expertise. It is worth your time to schedule with us and let us ‘treat your symptoms and touch your heart.’”

awley Architects is a proponent of the costeffective “design build” methodology of delivering projects. Cawley Architects is unique because it successfully partners with many contractors and clients to deliver commercial projects that represent the highest level of achievement in cost control, scheduling, architect/contractor collaboration and client satisfaction. In 2018, Cawley Architects participated in mixed-use, light industrial, distribution, office, healthcare, retail and restaurant projects totaling more than 2 million square feet. COMPANY STRENGTHS: “Strengths that contributed to our No. 1 ranking include prioritizing the relationship over the transaction, overcoming the many shortcomings of traditional architectural services delivery, creating clean, crisp, cost conscience designs, providing responsiveness, and focusing on an error-free drawing package from our QA/QC department..” IMPACT OF 2019 TRENDS: “Labor shortages in the industry will continue to create pressure in all areas of services and construction arenas, with commensurate wage increases. Commodity pricing will continue, with materials and tariff-related pricing leading the way. Additionally, increased interest rates will now enter into the market and put downward pressure on development.”

vison Young is the world’s fastest-growing commercial real estate services firm. Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, Avison Young is a collaborative, global firm owned and operated by its principals. Founded in 1978, the company comprises 2,700 real estate professionals in 85 offices, providing valueadded, client-centric investment sales, leasing, advisory, management, financing and mortgage placement services to owners and occupiers of office, retail, industrial, multi-family and hospitality properties. COMPANY STRENGTHS: “While our firm offers resourceful and experienced professionals proven in their fields, we believe our culture of investing in clients and staff and placing great value on those relationships, contributed to our earning the No. 1 ranking.” IMPACT OF 2019 TRENDS: “One impactor will be the rising interest rates. While still historically low, rising rates will have an impact on CAP rates and generally cause a pause or slowdown in investment transactions. Also, the increased cost of construction for tenant improvements and new development will raise needed rental rates which tend to dampen overall activity.”

lan Zell started the company in 1977 after being transferred from New Jersey to Arizona by a shopping center developer in 1974. The company has always focused on providing shopping center management and leasing services on open-air shopping centers in Arizona. The current portfolio includes more than 4 million square feet of retail properties throughout the Valley, Payson and Show Low. Biltmore Plaza (32nd Street Camelback), Arrowhead Palms (75th Avenue and Bell) and Foothills Park Place (I-10 and Ray Road) are some signature properties. Zell’s staff of 20 professionals is dedicated to exceeding the expectations of clients. COMPANY STRENGTHS: “Recognizing that our contracts provide our clients with the right to terminate on short notice drives our efforts to provide a high level of consistent performance, which has only been possible by many long-term staff members who have accepted the challenge to exceed the expectations of our clients.” SURPRISING FACT: “Alan Zell’s parents owned a clothing store on Main Street in Manville, N.J. Shopping centers drew the customers from downtown areas, which resulted in their decision to close the store. I have a soft spot for the independent retailer and have tried to be a resource for them whenever possible.”

Capital & Finance

alker & Dunlop’s national platform provides all the capabilities of a large company — dedicated experts with deep industry expertise in all asset classes, proprietary insights on pricing and market movements and the ability to deliver creative finance solutions from its trusted network of capital providers. But what differentiates Walker & Dunlop’s capital is its focus on delivering the personal service that its clients would expect from a boutique firm. Walker & Dunlop treats its clients as one of them, starting by understanding their vision, and Walker & Dunlop does everything it can to go the extra mile — every time. IMPACT OF 2019 TRENDS: “We are bullish on multifamily. We have a strong GDP growth in America, we have a limited amount of inflationary pressures, and we had peak deliveries of multifamily in 2017. We are coming down on the deliveries on the multifamily side and occupancy should stay up. Many people renting today will remain renters, where in past cycles they would have moved out and bought a single-family home.” SURPRISING FACT: “Walker & Dunlop turned 81 years old on November 8, 2018. Walker & Dunlop is ranked No. 42 on the 2018 FORTUNE Fastest-Growing Companies list.”

Expanding and consolidating corporate strategies should continue to drive the need for user driven, office and industrial space.”

Landscape: Architects

F

riends for more than 25 years, Jeffrey Anderson and Marc Beyer went through a lot of life experiences together before Jeffrey Anderson died suddenly and unexpetedly of natural causes on Jan. 1, 2019. The courage and perseverance the two men saw in each other through their shared experiences led to the formation of The Design Element 12 years ago. The team at The Design Element brings the same tenacity and bold approach to each of its projects. Landscape architecture is a noble endeavor and the team at The Design Element embraces the challenge to practice in a manner that demonstrates the search for harmony between society and the natural environment. The Design Element’s work is true to the region, responsive to its context, meaningful to the culture and functional to its inhabitants. COMPANY STRENGTHS: “We believe that integrity is key in everything we do. Our thirst for knowledge grows with each new experience. We value opportunities that allow us to work with great clients, contribute to a creative team and have a positive impact on our community.” IMPACT OF 2019 TRENDS: “As our natural environment continues to diminish, creating sustainable outdoor spaces of respite in the urban context becomes more important and the need for Landscape Architects grows. Awareness of the importance of low water use in the arid southwest will add value to landscapes that reduce dependency on potable water.

illagio Tile & Stone was established in 2001 with a vision to create a great experience when shopping for tile and stone. Virtually all of Villagio’s tile on display can be removed and placed on 10 different design tables located within the showroom to help coordinate all of the elements of your room. Villagio collaborates with designers, builders and homeowners to create beauty that is is durable and easy to maintain.

STRENGTH OF STAFF: “Our sales staff is non commissioned. This allows each sales person to tap into the knowledge of our three-person management team that represents 100-plus years of tile experience. This expertise enables every salesperson to provide the homeowner the ideal tile that meets the buyers’ expectation of form and function.” IMPACT OF 2019 TRENDS: “As tile is sourced internationally, we are concerned about trade relations with Mexico, China and Europe. Nationally, we need a strong stock market Locally, we need to build homes. If all three remain strong, we should do well. If any unexpectedly reverse course, it would have a dramatic negative impact.”

Home Builders: Custom

L

aBlonde Homes has been building custom residences in Scottsdale, Carefree and Cave Creek for 30 years. When it comes to design ingenuity, there are few builders in the area who can match Tom LaBlonde’s experience, reputation and portfolio. From the initial blueprints to the last nail, LaBlonde Homes works with its clients to ensure quality and satisfaction along every step of the home building process. LaBlonde Homes offers fully integrated design and construction services that honor and reflect the requirements, preferences and vision of each client. IMPACT OF 2019 TRENDS: “We are witnessing a surge of spaces that encourage gathering and play, whether it’s a basketball court, an infinity pool or a state-ofthe-art movie theater. Many luxury custom homes have wonderful outdoor living areas with all-weather entertainment centers, sophisticated conversation terraces and outdoor sanctuary spas. Also, kitchens are now acting as social hubs, so clients are looking to cook together and turn the kitchen into a user-friendly comfort zone with the latest smart technology in appliances.” OUTLOOK FOR 2019: “2019 looks to be a strong year with owners looking for home sites that provide them with the freedom to design and elbow room to live.”

iseman & Gale is, in many ways, a collective of designers with a shared history. Wiseman & Gale is a select group of imaginative people, influenced by the unique elements of the American West and a belief in good design – collaborating and contributing to each other’s work in order to create Wiseman & Gale’s signature one-of-a-kind interiors. The firm’s nine seasoned designers are impacting today’s most important residential projects in Arizona and around the country. Wiseman & Gale was established in 1965 by founders George Wiseman and Anne Gale. Their legendary partnership and successful early business greatly influenced the taste, style and creative process of the generation of designers who followed them. Over the years, the underlying principles of their approach to design have remained the firm’s foundation – commanding scale, luxury fabrics, bold colors, interesting compositions, subtle details and an emphasis on comfort and timeless beauty. Wiseman & Gale’s committed successors and current partners are Patty Burdick, Jana Parker Lee, Holly Ogden and Scott Burdick. They are leading the creative “virtuous” cycle began by the founders, with talent and experience passing from one generation to the next.
