TI named BBB Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics Recipient

Emerald Isle, N.C. (April 25, 2018)

Transportation Impact announced its recent recognition by Better Business Bureau serving Eastern North Carolina. Out of over 40 applications, Transportation Impact was selected as the winner for BBB’s Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics in the Large business category.

The Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics honors companies and charities that demonstrate a high level of character and ensure the organizations’ practices meet the highest standards of ethics. These companies generate a high level of trust among their employees, customers, and communities. The award embodies BBB’s mission of advancing marketplace trust.

“Work ethic, professionalism, and integrity are three of our five core values, so it means a lot to us to have been honored with this award after being a finalist last year,” said Transportation Impact Co-Founder Keith Byrd. “This award is confirmation that we are consistently working according to the principles that our company was founded on. The trust of our employees, partners, customers, and community is at the heart of our success, and we know that it is not given lightly.”

Transportation Impact was honored as a BBB Torch Award finalist on Thursday, May 19, 2018, at the BBB Torch Awards Ceremony at Prestonwood Country Club.
