Last night, the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa played host to nominees for the 29th Annual ATHENA Awards. Among the Valley businesswomen recognized this year is Co-founder and CEO of Infinite Reach Agency, — Kristi Church. This nomination comes in the midst of a wave of excitement for Church: the internet marketing company she has crafted is on the rise, and her newest business venture, Mogollon Moose Bakery, opened earlier this month in Payson, Ariz.
For every year since 1988, the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce (GPCC) has celebrated women who demonstrate excellence in local business through the ATHENA Awards program. Named for the Greek goddess of courage and wisdom, the award recognizes three women annually: one in the public sector, one in the private sector, and one up-and-coming young professional. There are three criteria that contribute to a nominee’s success: Leadership, Mentorship, and Community Service. With demonstrable prowess in all three areas, Church also possesses a crucial fourth: passion. She says, “I love my career as a business owner—I wake up smiling with every new day, ready to tackle the challenge to produce results for my clients.”
It is this determination that led her to first co-found Infinite Reach Agency. Driven by a passion for photography, she oversaw the development of a company that now offers creative visual and SEO-driven solutions for a quickly growing list of clients. Today, she is the sole owner and proprietor of Infinite Reach, and has expanded her horizons with the opening of Mogollon Moose, a body-healthy bakery and café. For her staff of predominantly other women, she strongly counsels following one’s passions, and the ATHENA nomination is evidence of her efficacy as a role model.
In addition to the leadership she provides at her businesses, Church also currently serves as the Marketing Director for Phoenix Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), Marketing Chair for the non-profit Women’s Enterprise Foundation (WEF), and Treasurer & Marketing Director for the community organization Partners for Paiute (PfP). Her work with these organizations underscores her professional passions in a way that ATHENA Selection Committee has been known to recognize. Advice from 2015 ATHENA Young Professional recipient Ashley Kasarjian included such suggestions as, “Be authentic,” and “learn more about how you can make your community a better place,” which Church has proved herself more than adept at.
The ATHENA Committee will honor recipients at the Awards Luncheon on October 26.
