The latest episode of the AZ Big Podcast with Michael & Amy has officially dropped. Episode 82 features all the details about the upcoming Most Admired Companies (MAC) Awards.

“We have really streamlined the nomination process to attract new companies that want to showcase the amazing work they are doing,” says AZ Big Media Publisher Amy Lindsey. “Most Admired Companies is a very unique event in that it doesn’t honor just one facet of a business. It takes into account all those things that separate a company from its competition — leadership, culture, community impact, innovation and how well the company serves its customers or clients. Most Admired Companies really honors the best of the best in Arizona. Every company aspires to be the best of the best.”
