“We are proud to celebrate 30 years of EO Arizona, a community that has been instrumental in shaping the success stories of entrepreneurs in the Valley,” says Mike Privert, CEO of Speks and 2023-2024 organization president. “Our commitment to fostering entrepreneurship and empowering individuals has been the driving force behind EO Arizona’s success over the last three decades.”

With 218 members and counting, EO Arizona stands as one of the largest chapters globally, attracting dynamic entrepreneurs who are founders, co-founders, or majority stakeholders of businesses generating $1M+ in annual revenue. Notable figures such as former Arizona Governor and past CEO of Cold Stone Creamery Doug Ducey, best-selling author Ken McElroy, and current partners of Upward Projects, Lauren Bailey and Craig DeMarco, credit much of their achievements to the foundation they discovered in EO.

Recognizing some of the key influencers in the EO Arizona community, including Dave Anderson of Off Madison Ave, Jon Rosenberg of LevRose Real Estate, Kyle Bell of Bell Sports Marketing LLC, Matt Altman of Sportiqe, Lisa Roux of Shooter’s World, Veronique James of The James Agency, and Mike Marx of Marx Productions, EO Arizona continues to shape the entrepreneurial landscape.

“EO Arizona has been a beacon for entrepreneurs, offering not just a network, but a family of like-minded individuals driven by a common goal of success and community impact,” says Ashley Richards, CEO of E Squared Marketing and current Marketing and Communications chair for the organization. “The last three decades have witnessed the transformative power of EO, and I am proud to be part of a community that continues to shape the entrepreneurial landscape.”

In addition to celebrating their 30th Anniversary, EO Arizona is also slated to be the first stop of a four-city powerhouse learning tour called EO Rise, kicking off on March 28.
