Kelmann Wins BBB Torch Award for Ethics!
The recipients were selected by an independent, distinguished panel of ten business ethics experts and will be recognized at the annual Torch Awards for Ethics luncheon at Bartolotta Catering at the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee beginning at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 15, 2019.
Since 2003, the Wisconsin BBB Torch Awards for Ethics honors businesses and non-profit organizations of all sizes that meet the highest standard of ethics and trust among their employees, customers, and local communities, embodying BBB’s mission to advance marketplace trust. Recipients are chosen based on their applications, which include an in-depth explanation and evidence of commitment to ethical business practices.
“Our 2019 award recipients shared compelling and inspiring personal stories in their applications. These Wisconsin businesses are intentionally striving to be ethical in every sense,” says Jim Temmer, President and CEO of BBB Serving Wisconsin. “We congratulate all of these exemplary recipients, and we look forward to recognizing them at our awards ceremony in May.”
“We are honored to be a Torch Award recipient, and are grateful that our employees and our mission are being recognized by the Better Business Bureau,” says Tom Kelly, President of Kelmann Restoration. “We are a company that values honesty and integrity. There are many good companies in our industry, some in our own market. Our promise is that we are going to treat you like family. You are one of us. Even when the day is difficult or the answers might not be what you were hoping to hear: we trust you, we care for you, and we will always be transparent with you. At the end of the day, you can count on Kelmann.”
Kelmann Restoration was a Torch Award winner in 2004, and a runner up in both 2003 and 2006.
