Additionally, the Westmarc Board of Directors recognized individuals and projects that inspire leadership and advances the West Valley. They are:

Buckeye Mayor Jackie Meck for inspiration in leadership, Western Maricopa Education Center for regional advancement and Bobbi Magdaleno of Arizona State University, President’s Choice Award.

“Even in pandemic, we received many equally strong nominations this year. This is definite indication that the West Valley’s economy is still growing and expanding with quality investments,” Westmarc President and CEO Sintra Hoffman said. “Westmarc is proud to honor these outstanding individuals and organizations making a great impact in the West Valley.”

This year was especially important for the organization as 2020 marks Westmarc’s 30th anniversary.

“I’m thrilled that we were able to hold this unique event in person and virtually through partnerships with Phoenix Raceway for an outdoor event and with AMR for safety checks,” board Chairman Jon Howard said.
