Starkey Named to Inc. Magazine’s Power Partner List

Eden Prairie, Minnesota (October 24, 2023) – Starkey is proud to announce it has been named to Inc. Magazine’s 2023 Power Partner list. This prestigious distinction recognizes reliable business-to-business organizations that care as much for a client's business as they do their own. Winners were selected based largely on feedback directly from customers.

“Starkey’s mission is to serve our customers better than anyone else, but there’s a much deeper meaning to that seemingly simple statement,” said Starkey President and CEO Brandon Sawalich. “Our customers are our partners in helping people around the world hear better, so they can live better lives. Starkey’s ground-breaking hearing technology may provide the best sound experience on the market, but without our partners, it wouldn’t reach the ears of patients who need them most. We are grateful for our partners and thank them for continuing to put their trust in Starkey.”

Starkey firmly believes that better hearing is best served at the hands of the hearing healthcare professional. As a world leader in advanced hearing technologies, Starkey is focused on helping professionals deliver the highest quality of patient care through the innovation of its products and the passion of its people.

“It begins with caring,” Sawalich continued. “Starkey is a culture company that puts people first. A team of caring people can change an industry. Hearing is essential at Starkey. Hearing is our concern.”

Under the leadership of Sawalich, Starkey has also been named a winner of the 2022 Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Ethics, honoring organizations whose leaders demonstrate a high level of personal character, ensuring that the organization’s practices meet the highest standards of ethics, and consequently, generate trust with their customers and the community. In addition, earlier this year, Sawalich was named Executive of the Year in the 2023 BIG Excellence in Customer Service Awards, recognizing leaders who are providing a differentiated level of care and service.
