Stephanie Maderazzo-Hughes, Canyon State Electric CEO, accepts the Most Admired Companies award

Phoenix, AZ – Canyon State Electric (CSE) was named one of Arizona’s Most Admired Companies in September by AZ Big Media and BestCompaniesAZ. Fifty recognized businesses across all industries were invited to an awards ceremony last night in north Phoenix to celebrate their achievements.

The award measures companies across six key areas: customer opinion; diversity, equity, and inclusion; innovation; leadership excellence; social responsibility; and workplace culture. 

“Arizona’s Most Admired Companies is the most comprehensive and prestigious corporate awards program in the state because winners must demonstrate excellence in all six areas. It identifies the vast contributions and impact the Most Admired Companies bring to our state,” says Denise Gredler, co-founder of the Most Admired Companies program.

Michael Gossie, Editor in Chief at Az Business Magazine, adds, “The qualities recognized by Arizona’s Most Admired Companies program are the characteristics that build great companies. The companies honored with this award truly represent the best of the best in Arizona.”

Canyon State Electric has earned consistent recognition for its leadership and workplace culture— winning AZ Big Media’s Best Place to Work award for five consecutive years beginning in 2018. 

“The health, happiness, and overall well-being of our employees is the most important part of our company culture,” Stephanie Maderazzo-Hughes, Canyon State Electric’s CEO, said. “We have a highly talented staff that loves coming to work every day. They make us who we are.”
