The Rising Star category recognizes a young star for innovation, advancement, and implementation of technology.

“I am so grateful to have been named as a finalist for this award,” says Engram. “Being recognized as an emerging leader and Top Tech Exec by a publication like the Phoenix Business Journal is a huge honor.”

“We are lucky to have an executive of Sam’s caliber on the Paradigm team,” comments Paradigm’s President and CEO, Craig Rock. “Sam’s impact on Paradigm has been significant. For him to be recognized by one of the most prominent business publications in Arizona as a leader in the industry is an honor not just for Sam, but for Paradigm as well.”
