First Impression Ironworks Named Finalist of 2023 BBB Torch Awards for Ethics in Greater Arizona
The Better Business Bureau Serving the Pacific Southwest (BBB) has named First Impression Ironworks as one of the finalists for the 2023 BBB Torch Awards for Ethics. The BBB Torch Awards program raises awareness in the local Phoenix marketplace about ethics in business and honors companies that operate with integrity.
“First-class quality, first-class value and first-class care is our commitment to every customer, every custom iron product, and every home.” explains Mark Baraghimian, Chief Executive Officer of First Impression Ironworks.
The BBB Torch Awards for Ethics, sponsored by Desert Financial Credit Union, is one of the highest honors BBB bestows upon a company, and is designed to highlight outstanding business practices. Finalists are selected by an independent panel of community leaders based on criteria established by the International Association of Better Business Bureaus.
All finalists completed an evaluation where they demonstrated their commitment to ethics and trust in four categories: Character, Culture, Customers and Community. Finalists have illustrated the character of their organization’s leadership, how an authentic culture is being fostered, how the company prioritizes its relationship with customers, and the impact the organization is making in their community.
“Honesty builds trust, which is a vital aspect in the success of a business. For 21 years, BBB has been recognizing outstanding companies in Greater Arizona for their solid commitment to doing things the right way,” said Shelley Bradley, Director of Signature Events for BBB Serving the Pacific Southwest. “This esteemed award recognizes business leaders who demonstrate a superior level of character and ensure their organization’s practices meet the highest ethical standards, thereby generating trust.”
Winners will be announced at the signature event on November 15 at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix. For a complete list of this year’s BBB Torch Awards for Ethics Finalists visit torchawards.bbbcommunity.org.
