Backed by sophisticated resources, a Raymond James financial advisor can help you plan for what’s important to you. That’s LIFE WELL PLANNED. ROBERT W.

THE RACE TO BE N0. 1 “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.”

“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 and vendor partners.”

Jim Afinowich, principal, IBG Fox & Fin Financial Group

Bill Lavidge, CEO, Lavidge

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 offers a reason to celebrate during challenging times

PRESIDENT & CEO: MICHAEL ATKINSON PUBLISHER: AMY LINDSEY VICE PRESIDENT OF OPERATIONS: AUDREY WEBB

O

h, what a year it has been! Congratulations, we made it through 2020 together. It was a year that taught us to be grateful for what we have. We succeeded in getting through lockdowns, restrictions, Zoom meetings gone rogue, and things that got out of our control. Success came in many different ways for us last year. I came across this piece about defining success in this new era of COVID-19, and thought it still holds true for 2021.

SUCCESS To laugh often and love much. To win the respect of intelligent people and the affections of children. To earn the approval of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty. To find the best in others. To give one’s self. To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition. To have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with jubilation. To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded Welcome to the 24th annual edition of Ranking Arizona: The Best of Arizona Business. This publication exemplifies success. Ranking Arizona magazine is the result of Arizona's largest business opinion poll. Participants base their selections on the quality of products and services provided by the companies they vote for. These are the top companies with whom Arizona voters recommend doing business. The bulk of the voting takes place on our website at (azbigmedia.com). The votes are tallied and totaled in August and ranked according to their total number of votes.

COMPANY STRENGTHS: “We have passionate brand ambassadors: Our staff, former employees, and valued clients.

We pay close attention to fast-changing consumer behaviors. We see businesses move away from flashy advertising campaigns to those that push deeply into data, attribution, performance, and lead generation.”

SS Security Services is an Arizona company established in 1988. VSS Security Services has multiple branch offices throughout the Midwest and Arizona. VSS Security Services is a 100 percent family owned business for more than 31 years. VSS Security uses the latest technology to the fullest extent to help security officers expand their capabilities for a safe and secure environment of the client’s facilities. VSS Security Services will never waiver from its commitment to maintain team spirit based on pride and mutual respect within the company and for its clients. VSS Security Services believes that customer service is the most important piece to a successful company, not the size of your company. IMPACT OF 2021 TRENDS: “My main concerns will always be terrorism, cybersecurity and the random acts of violence. The other concern is that our industry — that was once made up of the ‘Mom and Pop’ and regional security companies — is being bought up by a select few international companies that are owned by investment groups and it’s changing the dynamics of the industry. Size and cash flow does not produce customer service, which is what VSS Security Services and all the remaining Mom and Pop security companies are about.”

Restaurants: Breakfast

hough Scramble might appear to be a national chain, it is not. Scramble is Arizona grown with Sun Devil pride. So when you dine at Scramble, you aren’t feeding some out-of-state corporate super structure, you’re helping support our local economy, local farmers and vendors, Scramble’s team and their families and the local community that Scramble gives back to. COMPANY STRENGTHS: “Scramble is a fresh look at breakfast and it all begins with using the freshest ingredients around. How we do it is no secret, we pride ourselves on using local farmers and vendors whenever possible. From your first bite to your last, you will taste the difference farm fresh makes.” STRENGTH OF STAFF: “Faster. Fresher. Friendlier. Our staff lives by our company motto to bring Arizona the freshest meals, by a team that truly loves what they do, with a quick casual dining style. Our staff make us who we are and inspire us to be better every day we’re open.” SURPRISING FACT: “That we are not a national chain. Our modern decor, quick casual approach, food presentation and service standards typically require corporate resources. We’re constantly asked who owns Scramble, and most are surprised that we’re just a couple of Arizona guys who’ve found the right way to get things done.”

hef Jean-Christophe was born in Northeast France and has over 35 years of experience working in famous Michelin star restaurants in France. After a short visit in the U.S. and one night in Scottsdale in 2007, Jean-Christophe Gros and Ségolène Gros fell in love with the city. Their family decided to move to Scottsdale in 2015 to share their passion. Voila French Bistro serves traditional French cuisine with a modern and elegant style. Chef is running the kitchen and his wife, Ségolène, with 25 years in the industry, runs the front of the restaurant. COMPANY STRENGTHS: “The simplicity and authenticity of our cuisine. We treat our guests like family and hope that while they visit and enjoy our food they might close their eyes and feel like they are in France.” STRENGTH OF STAFF: “We take pride in providing the best service to our guests. We train our staff to be attentive and pay attention to the smallest details. We are passionate about serving the best food and we love to share our culinary traditions from France.” OUTLOOK FOR 2021: “We recently hired a new chef, who also moved here from France, Thomas Potier. Thomas worked with Chef Jean-Christophe for many years in France. He specializes in pastries, so we hope to offer new desserts. We are also considering serving breakfast.”

In large part, PPP loans, forgiveness strategies, and policy updates were a critical component of business survival. Davis Miles McGuire Gardner stayed abreast of updates and made sure its clients could adapt. This service, Davis Miles McGuire Gardner believes, is why it was ranked No. 1 in “banking law” this year. COMPANY STRENGTHS: “We believe in improving lives. When COVID-19 hit, our clients’ livelihoods were threatened. We were able to work hard to stay abreast of all applicable laws and help businesses borrow to stay open and keep people on payroll.” IMPACT OF 2021 TRENDS: “The pandemic will continue to drive response to the economy. Businesses that are agile mobile and opportunistic will grow and find ways to adapt.

Much depends on COVID and restrictions that are making it hard for small business.”

lythe Grace specializes in business and civil litigation, corporate and limited liability company matters, business transactions, employment law counseling and litigation, real estate transactions and litigation, HOA matters and disputes, intellectual property litigation, cannabis law, criminal defense, mediation and arbitration, and general counsel services. COMPANY STRENGTHS: “Our firm is diverse in thought and execution, and we are very good at what we do. But, a lot of lawyers say things like that. Beyond excellent work in the office and court, we put client service first by charging lower than market rates, offering flat fee or contingency relationships when it makes sense, and not billing our clients for calls, faxes, postage or local travel. Our firm is also in the process of automating much of the firms back office to improve our response time to client communications and work product delivery (with those savings being passed on to our clients). Because most of our clients are Arizona based businesses and individuals, we are also deeply tied to Arizona’s communities.”

One of the Firm’s focuses for 2021 will be to help shape those changes in order to insure that our clients continue to enjoy the rights they are entitled to and obtain the best possible results notwithstanding the evolution of the court system.” STRENGTH OF STAFF: “MayesTelles PLLC has former prosecutors, former law enforcement, and individuals from different backgrounds and walks of life on our team. This unique insight gives them the skills to anticipate our opponent’s arguments, appreciate our clients’ unique needs and goals, and build a defense accordingly.”

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 or going to the wrong provider. COMPANY STRENGTHS: “The experience of Dr. David Smith and the CVD staff is our No. 1 strength in Glendale. Our patients compliance with the advise and treatment plans of our providers is also a key to PatientCentered care in a Servant Leadership model led by our doctors and staff. We also collaborate with wound care centers, hospitals, primary care, OBGYN’s, and others to provide a complete solution to the patients needs. TRUST is what has made us No. 1 in the Southwest.” SURPRISING FACT: “Patient word-of-mouth and physician referrals, not pricey advertising, drives our growth from year to year.”

r. Knighton has been practicing bariatric medicine since 1996 and founded his practice in 1998. He has been a resident for the past 28 years and there’s no better place he’d rather call home. He has built a one-of-a-kind practice right here in the Valley of the Sun. Dr. Knighton’s philosophy on helping patients succeed is to never assume that any two people are the same. His multi-faceted approach has become an art form; his vast knowledge of bariatric medicine, ability to see beyond the obstacles and taking science into consideration truly make him one-of-a-kind. COMPANY STRENGTHS: “Dr. Knighton’s compassion and his own battle with weight are what sets him apart from others. He makes it a priority to be involved in the care of every patient that walks through his door, as well as the ability to spend extra time when someone really needs it. He never wants his patients to feel lost in the shuffle. He wants his patients to feel at home in a comfortable, inviting atmosphere.” OUTLOOK FOR 2021: “Botox and dermal fillers continue to grow in demand; especially as weight is lost and the desire to feel great increases. Needless to say, Dr. Knighton and his certified physician assistant, Nicolle Skarmas, will stay very busy.”

re your critical sales proposals stalled by data security requirements? Cosant offers data security peace of mind by helping you understand SOC2, CMMC and other compliance requirements; understand the costs and benefits of compliance; get compliant quickly; and make your current and future sales easier. Do you cringe at the data security addendum in sales RFPs? Coast helps you avoid having your sales process stalled at the last stage with delays needing input from multiple departments (HR, IT, legal); avoid the significant revenue loss of your proposals being counted out; and avoid feeling overwhelmed and unprepared to effectively and efficiently respond to sales proposals. STRENGTH OF STAFF: “Cosant is unique in the marketplace because we offer 100 percent pure consulting and advisory services. Our deliverables and consulting work have the highest integrity and credibility because we sit on the same side of the table as our clients.” IMPACT OF 2021 TRENDS: “Pressure through vendor risk management programs is like Y2K all over again. Organizations are realizing that if businesses in their supply chain are vulnerable, then so are they. Look for customer and partner demand for proof of an information security program to continue to increase.”

ORE Construction’s founder, Otto Baum, immigrated to Morton, Illinois in 1925 with the hopes of building a new life for his family. He quickly established a reputation for being an honest, hard-working man. When Otto applied for a loan for his masonry company in 1937, he had nothing to use as collateral except his proven character. When the bank manager asked why they should consider Otto’s request, the loan officer simply replied, “I trust him.” This event sparked the beginning of CORE, which now operates across Arizona with the same values that Otto started the company with in 1937. STRENGTH OF STAFF: “Our team is united under a similar desire to build for the future. Our projects help build and shape our communities through the construction of great schools, universities, and public safety facilities. The pride that our team feels motivates us to continually improve every process and professional service we employ.” OUTLOOK FOR 2021: “We are excited about 2021. Despite the challenges we have faced in 2020, we believe Arizona is as strong as ever. We are making continued investments in our team, training, and technology to ensure we are ready to face any challenge that comes our way with strength and optimism.”

Contractors: Tenant Improvement

jerk Builders, Inc.was incorporated in 1986 and had its first fiscal year in 1987. Scott Bjerk started the company when he was 27 years old after working for several other contractors in the Valley. COMPANY STRENGTHS: “Our strong commitment to our clients on delivering the projects on time, solving critical issues quickly, and advising of any impact items to keep projects running smoothly to achieve an optimal outcome.” STRENGTH OF STAFF: “Many of our staff members have been with us for over 20 years, which I believe is a testament to our work environment. We have many different types of projects and I believe it keeps it interesting and fun. This year has been exceptionally challenging with the work from home issues but we like to keep a positive outlook.” IMPACT OF 2021 TRENDS: “I think the construction industry for office tenant improvements will be interesting with so many companies working remotely, the space dynamics will surely change. The industrial and manufacturing tenant improvements don’t seem to be impacted as much from the virus. Employee retention and finding additional labor will still be one of the keys to 2021.” OUTLOOK FOR 2021: “The outlook for us is extremely strong and I believe it will stay that way as Arizona seems to be the place to be right now.”

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.
