Stephanie Maderazzo-Hughes, CEO/COO, Canyon State Electric

BACKGROUND: Stephanie Maderazzo-Hughes has served in the electrical industry for more than 25 years. As the CEO and COO of Canyon State Electric (CSE), she develops and executes corporate strategies, financial planning and analysis. Maderazzo-Hughes leads her team by continually creating opportunities for employees to be involved in decision-making and propose solutions that move the company forward. 

SOURCE OF PRIDE: “I’m proud of how we navigated the economic downturn from 2007 to 2011. It was a challenging time for the business, but the lessons we learned gave us the expertise and confidence to lead CSE through the pandemic, and we’ve come out stronger on the other side.”

SURPRISING FACT: “I used to be a gymnast and I still have a few tricks up my sleeve! I can do a handstand, and when we do team building activities like the Tough Mudder, my team is shocked that I climb 10-foot walls and carry heavy sandbags.”

SOURCE OF INSPIRATION: “Eleanor Roosevelt has always inspired me. Despite expectations held to women of the time and her position as first lady, she always pursued her goals in business and activism. She had an unstoppable drive that I try to channel in everything I do.”
