Congratulations to George Brazil Air Conditioning and Heating and 1st Bank for joining us in the top 3 spots for this coveted award.

The BBB Torch Awards for Ethics, sponsored by Desert Financial Credit Union, signify the importance of integrity in the business world. We are proud to have undergone a rigorous evaluation process, showcasing our commitment to the four pillars of assessment—Character, Culture, Customers, and Community. This experience has strengthened our resolve to continually uphold the highest ethical standards.

The winners were announced at a grand event on November 15 at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, where industry leaders and ethical trailblazers gathered to celebrate excellence. We applaud the winners for their accomplishments and express our gratitude to the BBB for providing a platform that encourages and recognizes businesses committed to ethical practices.
