AZ Business Magazine July/August 2013

Lenore Grobstein: 1944-2013

Michael GossieIt’s fitting that in this issue of Az Business magazine, where we profile the “50 Most Influential Women in Arizona Business,” we also remember a dynamic colleague who influenced everyone at AZ Big Media, which publishes this magazine and
seven others.

Lenore Grobstein, who passed away on June 26, was vice president of sales and marketing for Ranking Arizona, our nearly 500-page annual publication that ranks Arizona businesses based on the outcome of the largest business opinion poll in
the state. She started at AZ Big Media in 2003.

Lenore was small in stature, but big in personality. If Ranking Arizona focused on individuals, there are several categories in which Lenore would rank No. 1. Most feisty. Most fearless. Most fiery. Most fun. And now sadly, most missed.

Rest in peace, Lenore.
