When Regal Fierce Media was opened in 2019, I knew as the CEO that running a small business would take a lot of time and energy to operate effectively. As the CEO, I would need to focus not only on growing the business but also learn to step away from the day-to-day activities and spend time networking and connecting with the community. The Copper Cactus Awards Ceremony was the perfect opportunity to achieve this vision, and I am grateful that my team and I could again attend this event. The Copper Cactus Awards Ceremony is one of Southern Arizona’s most popular events, showcasing the beautiful businesses thriving in our community. Thank you, Tucson Metro Chamber, all the event-category sponsors, and Casino del Sol for creating an unforgettable event recognizing Southern Arizona businesses’ economic impact.
One of the trademarks of this event is the bronze cactus-shaped award winners receive. I am so excited that Regal Fierce Media was voted the winner of the Startup of the Year category. Being selected in this category was an honor because all businesses, especially emerging ones, need the community’s support to help raise awareness about their products and services.
The chance for us to be chosen as the winner in this category, sponsored by Tech Parks Arizona, was meaningful because it was empowering to have a significant local organization cheering us on. Tech Parks Arizona is part of the University of Arizona and attracts technology and talent to the region. The organization supports and retains innovators, researchers, and businesses by offering them the space to create real-world business opportunities.
As the CEO of Regal Fierce Media, the phrase “real-world opportunities” resonates with me. Why? Regal Fierce Media aims to use our expertise to help clients connect their products and services to the real-world needs of Southern Arizona. Doing this, we help our clients create opportunities to scale their businesses and strengthen the economy.
With the Tucson economic outlook getting brighter as each new business opens, I am excited about their impact in 2024. As 2023 ends, I hope you will reflect on what you want to achieve next year. One of my professional goals is to continue strongly supporting the Southern Arizona businesses by attending local events. Tucson creatives are the pulse of the economy, and Regal Fierce Media will be out and about attending business and community events so that we can help these businesses become even more successful. Let’s all work together to make this happen, and I hope to see you at next year’s Copper Cactus Awards!
As the CEO of Regal Fierce Media, I’m beyond happy to share some incredible news: our agency won the prestigious title of Best Videographer at the 2023 Readers’ Choice Awards Ceremony. When I heard the agency’s name announced that night, I remember shouting excitedly, “We did it! We did it!” That moment is something that I will never forget.
Being nominated for this award was an honor, and we won this award because of Daniel Calderon and Luke Ralston’s strong videography team. From day one, these two have driven the agency’s video and production services. They infuse their expertise, passion and dedication into each client’s project; this award proves their efforts. Not only am I proud of Daniel and Luke, but I am also grateful for our amazing supporters and clients—like YOU. Your dedication to casting daily votes supporting Regal Fierce Media is another reason we won this award. Your votes did matter!
One of the best things about being the CEO of Regal Fierce Media is networking and partnering with other businesses. The Readers’ Choice Awards gave us the chance to achieve this goal. We had a blast meeting other nominees and business owners, which is why this event was such an unforgettable experience. Regal Fierce Media is proud to have shared this special ceremony with everyone, and we thank the Arizona Daily Star for creating this empowering event. If you have never attended this awards ceremony, I urge you to buy a ticket or a table next year. This is one of Tucson’s most celebrated events; you will not be disappointed. Supporting this event will connect you with local businesses and allow you to see how Tucson’s fast-growing business community benefits our economy.
At Regal Fierce Media, I have the privilege of leading an outstanding team that is dedicated to producing high-quality work. As the CEO, I take pride in introducing my team to the community through various events, partnerships, and our blogs. One of our star employees is Alexis, who serves as our Marketing and Production Assistant. Alexis is a rockstar when it comes to social media and content creation, and her work has helped us tremendously in building our brand.
Recently, Alexis used a quote that really resonated with me: “Do something today that your future self will thank you for!” This quote serves as a powerful reminder that the small steps we take today can lead to significant outcomes down the road. Whether it’s making a conscious effort to learn something new, networking with someone in your industry, or simply taking care of your physical and mental health, every action we take today can have a positive impact on our future selves. At Regal Fierce Media, we embrace this philosophy and strive to apply it to all aspects of our work.
Alexis is right! Every step—small or large—that I take as the CEO of Regal Fierce Media contributes to our journey as a successful business in Southern Arizona. The Readers’ Choice Award confirms that hard work pays off for any business or individual and that success follows when you love what you do.
We are so excited to announce Regal Fierce has won the Better Business Bureau (BBB) 2023 Spark Award in Tucson, Arizona.The Spark Award recognizes millennial business owners and co-owners who demonstrate a high level of character, generating a culture that is authentic about its mission, and is engaged with the Southern Arizona community.
