Better Business Bureau serving the Pacific Southwest (BBB) awarded five companies the 2018 BBB Torch Awards for Ethics during its 17th annual dinner, sponsored by Desert Financial Credit Union.

“No matter what size, companies will face challenges that, at times, might test their integrity and ethics,” said Matthew Fehling, President/CEO for BBB Serving Pacific Southwest. “Doing what’s right versus what’s convenient is not always the standard in business and BBB’s Torch Awards for Ethics seeks to not only find companies doing the right thing, but also honor them for their commitment to building trust in the marketplace.”
