Since 1987, the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce (GPCC) has honored the accomplishments of businesses and the impact they make on the Greater Phoenix business community. GPCC looks for companies with a strong footprint in the Valley that deserve special recognition.

GPCC recognizes two businesses—one with 250 employees or fewer and one with more than 250 employees—in four categories. An IMPACT Business of the Year Recipient is selected from the category recipients in both business sectors and announced at the 31st Annual IMPACT Awards Luncheon on May 24, 2018.

Meet the companies that have been named a 2018 IMPACT Awards recipients.
