Von Raisanen, TraVek President commented, “We recognize that there are a lot of businesses that would be equally deserving, and so to be chosen as the Sterling Awards winner for this category is humbling.  We thank the Chamber, its panel and members, and our community for recognizing the hard work of our entire TraVek team, and for the encouragement as we continue to work for this community and its people.”

The 2019 Sterling honorees were revealed at a luncheon on Friday, November 15th, at the Embassy Suites Resort in Scottsdale.

"The Sterling Awards for Small business, companies between 6 and 99 full-time employees, recognizes a company that demonstrates success through product or service innovation, quality and professionalism, and has made contributions to community-oriented projects," said Mark Stanton, President and CEO of the Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce, at the awards banquet on Friday.

The Sterling Awards recognize the great accomplishments of businesses in Scottsdale, and represents innovation, success and the highest standards of business practice excellence, Stanton said in an earlier release.

The process leading up to the award ceremony was quite involved and required a great commitment from many people. There were 6 judges that came to TraVek (and each company) for a presentation about the company, its Mission, Vision, Values, and Goals. There were questions about its culture and the people who are employed as well as the clients it serves, and questions about associations, impact, and contributions to the community. They also asked contestants about adaptability and responding to economic changes in the industry, as well as innovation in running the business. Each judge independently scored the companies he or she visited and then tallied the points to determine the final winner of each category.



The SMALL BUSINESS category was sponsored by Cox Business.
