Non-compete agreemnet

I am a Recruiter with a candidate that lives in Texas and is looking to make a career change to Arizona. He is an Engineer and wants to make a move to a competitor in Arizona. The position in Arizona is an Engineering position and he is currently an Engineer in Texas in the same Industry.
Is the Non-compete agreement he signed with his present employer enforceable in Arizona?

wrong state!

don't know how your question found its way to the california page, recruiter, but the answer to the question depends on az law, tx law, and/or a theory called "choice of laws" as applicable in those states. it doesn't depend at all on california law. your client needs an attorney probably from az to answer that question for her. btw, this is advice that should be paid for by consulting with an attorney experienced in employment law, because each such situation is unique, and does not necessarily get a yes/no answer. you can find such an attorney in az, and/or tx, by going to the website of the nat'l employment lawyers assn and looking up attorney members in those areas.
