The door and window manufacturer is among 17 firms from across the country that will be recognized at an invitation-only luncheon on March 20 at ASU’s campus in Tempe, Ariz.

“We’re honoring organizations that demonstrate innovation, growth, and entrepreneurial spirit,” says Sidnee Peck, director of the Center for Entrepreneurship at the W. P. Carey School of Business. “The inaugural Sun Devil Select class includes firms from Chicago, the Los Angeles area, Kansas City, Dallas and the Phoenix area.”

Gates, who joined Western Window Systems in 2011, holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing and will graduate with an MBA from Arizona State University in May.
