HOUSTON, April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Transwestern's Houston headquarters today announced it has been named one of the 2014 "Best Companies to Work for in Texas," marking the eighth consecutive year the commercial real estate services firm has been recognized. Transwestern ranked fifth among 30 recipients in the large employer category, six places higher than the previous year. The awards program is conducted by Texas Monthly magazine, the Texas Association of Business, Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management and Best Companies Group.
"We are always so honored by this recognition and to be named a 'Best Company to Work for in Texas' eight straight years is truly humbling," said Chip Clarke, President │ Americas. "The credit all goes to our wonderful team members who work hard everyday to serve our clients and each other at the highest level."
