In a ceremony yesterday in Schaumburg, Ill., Lieberman Management Services (LMS) was presented with the Better Business Bureau’s (BBB) Torch Award for Chicago and Northern Illinois. The Torch Award for Ethical Commerce is BBB’s highest recognition given annually to businesses in Chicago and Northern Illinois that display the highest of ethical business practices.
TV personality Hosea Sanders, of ABC-7, presented the award to LMS’s Chief Executive Officer, Carla Young Kennedy. LMS’s executive staff was invited to attend the award presentation and scholarship luncheon. Paralympic Medalist, Iraqi Military Hero, leader, and motivational speaker Melissa Stockwell was the keynote speaker at the presentation.
The Torch Award not only symbolizes the importance of ethical business practices, it spotlights businesses that intentionally pursue the highest standards of integrity with employees and customers to build marketplace trust. A panel of business leaders separate from the BBB chooses the winners from hundreds of applications each year.
“The BBB’s mission of advancing marketplace trust is aligned with Lieberman’s mission, and helps our organization,” said Kennedy. “Our commitment to acting honestly, ethically, and with integrity is critical to our continued success. How we conduct our business and how we treat others – our colleagues, clients, customers, suppliers, and vendors will determine how the market views Lieberman.”
“The Torch Award is the premier award the BBB can present to a company,” says Steve J. Bernas, President and CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois. “Torch Award winners demonstrate the highest ethical standards of trust and behavior toward customers, business partners, shareholders, employees, and the communities in which they do business.”
