“It’s a privilege to honor all of the incredible individuals that make our communities an outstanding example of business done right,” said Vee Daniel, president and CEO of BBB. “This program sets extraordinary organizations apart because we believe in celebrating ethics within the communities we serve to make our communities better.”
