50 companies have risen from the constantly evolving and ever-challenging business environment to earn the right to call themselves Arizona’s Most Admired Companies of 2023, including KUBRA.
“Most Admired Companies is the most comprehensive and prestigious annual corporate awards program in Arizona,” says Amy Lindsey, publisher of AZ Big Media, which publishes Az Business magazine and co-founded the Most Admired Companies program with the team from BestCompaniesAZ. “To be called a Most Admired Company, a business must demonstrate excellence in its leadership; corporate culture; innovation; customer relations; community engagement; and diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts and programs.”
Arizona’s Most Admired Companies will be recognized at a celebration dinner on Thursday, October 5, 2023 at Chateau Luxe in Phoenix. For sponsorship information, email Amy.Lindsey@azbigmedia.com.

Customer opinion: In their 2022 Q2 survey, when asked how satisfied they were with KUBRA, 87% of clients said they were “very satisfied” or “somewhat satisfied.” Common themes from the company’s Q1 2023 survey included strong communication, always prioritizing client concerns, fast response time, and they work quickly to resolve issues and concerns.
Innovation: The KUBRA Engineering team completed a critical project using cutting-edge technology called micro frontends — an architectural pattern somewhat similar to microservices. Instead of keeping the codebase of a single page application (SPA) in a single monolithic codebase, micro frontends split the codebase into separate components, which are held together by a shell. This process ultimately helps speed up development.
