Dawn Nagle: Most Influential Women in Arizona

Dawn Nagle, executive director, Metro Phoenix Export Alliance (MPEXA)

Nagle oversees MPEXA’s initiatives, creating a stronger Greater Phoenix export-driven regional economy, by making exporting easier for businesses.

Advice: “Be collaborative with like-minded businesses and organizations to drive substantial change. Stay razor focused on the end result. Never confuse effort with results.”

Surprising fact: “I like a bit of adventure. One of my favorites was a private rowing trip through the Grand Canyon. Bailed water from the rafts, cooked the meals, hauled the equipment, took some amazing canyon hikes and did not leave a crumb behind … then hiked out.”
