GlobalTranz named no. 2 Fastest-Growing Company in Arizona


GlobalTranz Recognized at 2011 ACE Awards

(Phoenix, Ariz.) September 26, 2011 – GlobalTranz, a leader in the third party logistics and transportation industry, has been named the second fastest-growing company in Arizona and 29th largest in revenue for privately held companies in the state at this year’s Arizona Corporate Excellence (ACE) awards held on September 20.

The ACE awards, which is an event developed by Phoenix Business Journal, recognize the top private companies in the state of Arizona for two separate categories: annual revenue and year-over-year growth. The Scottsdale Center for the Arts hosted this year’s event.

Founder and CEO of GlobalTranz Andrew Leto said GlobalTranz maintains its growth through the years by introducing new technologies and focusing on the 5-6 percent of gross domestic product that is transportation. He also believes that growth for the company first comes from within the company. CFO Mark Schonau said, “Being named the second fastest-growing company in Arizona is a great honor and testament to the company that Andrew Leto built from scratch.” He also finds the fact that GlobalTranz won this award with no acquisitions especially rewarding.
