-- Snell & Wilmer is pleased to announce that the firm was ranked in the top 15 in the two primary categories of this year's Arizona Corporate Excellence (ACE) Awards presented by the Phoenix Business Journal. Snell & Wilmer was honored as #14 for Largest Phoenix-Area Private Companies and #11 for Fastest-Growing Phoenix-Area Companies at an unveiling ceremony held November 15 at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.
"We are honored to have received such prominent rankings in the key categories of the ACE Awards," said Matthew P. Feeney, chair of Snell & Wilmer. "As a relationship-
based firm, we pride ourselves in understanding our clients' business, their industry, and the trends and challenges that affect their ability to minimize risk and maximize success. Such an approach is at the heart of our firm's culture and is one that will continue to drive our success."
The ACE awards is the Phoenix Business Journal's annual ceremony recognizing the largest private companies by revenue and the fastest-growing businesses showing revenue increases over a two-year period. In its 24th year, the goal of the ACE Awards is to expand knowledge sharing and community among private companies in the Phoenix area. According to the Business Journal, the largest private companies in Arizona generate revenues of over $15 billion per year and employ over 40,000 employees in the State of Arizona and over 56,000 worldwide, making these companies very important to the economy of Arizona and the families they employ. The awards are based on a score that ranks growth, revenue, innovation and community impact. To be eligible for the awards, a company must be independent (no parent company), be privately held (not publicly traded), have revenue of at least $7 million in each of the two most recent fiscal years, and be headquartered in Arizona. Verification of company revenue is conducted by accounting firm CliftonLarsonAllen.About Snell & Wilmer
