Frost-Arnett Wins 2017 BBB Torch Awards for Ethical Commerce

5/30/2017 11:00 AM

The Nashville-based ACA member company is recognized for business performance criteria among companies with 175 or more employees.


Frost-Arnett recently received a 2017 Torch Award for Ethical Commerce from the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Middle Tennessee.

“The grounding principle that has driven Frost-Arnett since its inception is our desire to operate in an ethical and moral manner—always choosing the hard right over the easy wrong,” said Paul Sachtleben, president of Frost-Arnett, in a news release. “I’m comfortable saying that it is our most important value and our extended success would not have been possible without each generation of dedicated employees carrying that forward.”

Established in 1998, the BBB Torch Awards for Ethical Commerce spotlights companies in Middle Tennessee that exemplify BBB’s mission of ethical business practices, according to the news release.

“The BBB Torch Awards program is a rigorous entry for any business participating in the nomination process,” said Courtney McGee, chair of the Torch Awards Committee, in a news release. “This is not a popularity contest. Each nominee was required to submit an entry responding to and providing supporting documentation to four business performance criteria that build trust with employees, customers and vendors in the marketplace.”

Frost-Arnett will receive this recognition during a celebration held by the BBB at the company’s office with employees, business partners and customers.

“Presenting the Torch Award to each recipient at their place of business celebrates the vital role employees have in fostering a culture of ethical business principles,” said Kathleen Calligan, CEO of the BBB Middle Tennessee, in the news release. “Trust is the golden currency that creates customer loyalty, sustains business success and raises the standards for commerce in Middle Tennessee.”
