Success Stories

When Department of Defense contractor Phacil entered Arizona, Senior Recruiting Specialist Shirin Lee was impressed with the Arizona Commerce Authority's workforce development assistance. "Typically when we come into a new state, we're handed the keys and we never hear from them again. This is an awesome service."

Senior Recruiter Monique Hollingsworth of Silicon Valley Bank observed, "Each step of the way everyone I have encountered or interacted with at ACA has been professional, accommodating and ready to help in any way they can…gone above and beyond many times and always with enthusiasm."
