SANTA ANA, Calif., Dec. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Optima Tax Relief was honored this month by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) as a Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics finalist at a ceremony hosted by the BBB which monitors close to 85,000 businesses throughout San Diego, Orange, and Imperial Counties. Optima Tax Relief was one of just 15 companies honored at the annual event recognizing outstanding ethics in business.
Started in 1996, the Torch Awards for Ethics was created by the BBB to recognize companies who demonstrate best practices in leadership character and high standards of organizational ethics that benefits their customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders and communities.
The BBB's long-standing leadership in evaluating best business practices makes the award especially important, says David King, CEO of Optima Tax Relief. "Ethical practices are the bedrock of our company," says King. "It's tremendous to have the BBB, with their 100-plus-year history as leaders in consumer advocacy, honor us for our uncompromising ethical standards."
The awards were open to all businesses and organizations in the San Diego, Orange and Imperial Counties that are in good standing with the BBB, though BBB Accreditation is not a requirement for entry or consideration. The nominations are judged by a third-party panel that adheres to six specific areas of criteria in selecting companies who demonstrate the highest levels of ethical practices in business.
"At Optima, we make it our personal responsibility to provide our clients with exceptional service and results," says Jesse Stockwell, Co-founder of Optima. "Everything we do is done in pursuit of achieving the best for our clients."
Harry Langenberg, Optima's Managing Partner, added, "This award belongs to each and every one of our employees. It's a direct reflection of our staff's dedication to operating at the highest standards every day for every client."
This year's Torch Awards were formally handed out at a ceremony held at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla in San Diego on November 29th.
