RIVERSIDE, CA. — Phenix Technology, Inc.

Riverside County has a population of approximately 2.5 million with nearly 21,000 businesses.

Phenix Technology, Inc. CEO Angel Sanchez received the award on behalf of the company and had this to say “I couldn’t be prouder of our Phenix family. To be chosen as Employer of the Year out of the thousands of businesses in the county is an incredible honor.

"Since at least 2012, the county has supported Phenix’s growth through its vast number of employer services programs. The County of Riverside has been a wonderful partner for many years. They have been our go-to when we needed services like business analysis, recruitment, training incentives, export assistance, and so much more. When we need help the county is there. It’s how we have been successful in a state that is often thought to be challenging for small businesses. They are the reason we have called Riverside County home for over 30 years and why we encourage others to invest here.”
