Los Angeles Lakers all-time great Earvin "Magic" Johnson Jr. joined Arizona Public Service Co. in presenting the company's 2012 Diverse Supplier Excellence Awards to five businesses that have built a record of outstanding performance in working with APS and its customers. "In the NBA, I've learned what it takes to compete at the highest levels. You need to be committed to excellence and teamwork and have the willingness to get the job done in the face of difficult obstacles. You also need a great coach to provide opportunity and guidance," said Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SodexoMAGIC, LLC. "APS is a great partner and a great coach. They are committed to providing opportunity and the proper guidance needed for success. Arizona is very fortunate to have a company here that adds so much to the community at large."

“When business partners come from diverse backgrounds, APS gains access to new ideas and approaches from a wider base of suppliers. Diversity in our supplier base is a true reflection of our customers and the communities we serve,” said Brandt. “This is a program vital to our community and personally important to me. As a community leader, APS has a unique opportunity to make a difference by strengthening and empowering diverse businesses. This supports job creation, drives economic development and creates a sustainable energy future for Arizona.”
