“We love our association with GPEC. It’s doing a lot of good in Arizona.”

Matt Salmon, ASU, Vice President Government Affairs

Without participation in GPEC it would have taken me and my sales teams years, if ever, to meet critical business decision makers that are critical to success in selling Cox business solutions.  My advice is to get involved in all GPEC events and actively pursue your GPEC Ambassador certification.  It will pay dividends beyond your expectations.

Michael Banker, Sr. Manager, Strategic Client Teams, Cox Business – Arizona

The current intention and focus around aligning educational tracks and objectives with desired industries will play a pivotal role in determining what kind of community we leave behind.”
