The Tucson Metro Chamber of Commerce has announced this year’s finalists for its Copper Cactus Awards, which recognizes businesses all across Southern Arizona in various categories for their positive impacts on the community. The Rancho Sahuarita Management Company was announced as a finalist for the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona Best Place to Work Award for the second year in a row. The finalists of all six categories were announced on July 13th, 2019.
The Copper Cactus Awards are made up of categories including “Best Place to Work”, “Workforce Development”, “Small Business Leader of the Year”, “Business Growth”, “Innovation” and “Charitable Non-Profit Business”.
Rancho Sahuarita Management Company, which oversees the development and operation of Rancho Sahuarita, remains dedicated to its mission of “Creating a Better Life” for the community of 18,000 residents.
