James Barthel was notified in July that he was selected as a Semi-Finalist for the Denver Better Business Bureau 2016 Torch Awards and also Nominated for the 2016 Bill Daniels Ethical Leader of the Year Award.
Encouraging and supporting ethical business practices is a key purpose of the Better Business Bureau (BBB). The Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics is the most prestigious award the BBB can present to a business or nonprofit. Being a recipient indicates that the business not only believes in the high standards promoted by the BBB, but also consistently acts on them and continuously integrates them into daily practices.
Commenting on the news of being selected as a semi-finalist for the Denver Better Business Bureau 2016 Torch Award, Barthel stated, “I am humbled and honored. MT2 is run on a belief and value-system that service is a foundational reason for a business to exist. I focus on a balanced interest for all stakeholders including customers, employees, owners, business partners and suppliers. A balanced win-win approach for all stakeholders produces a culture of service focused on others along with the uncompromising integrity of being part of an enterprise with a higher purpose.”
The Bill Daniels Ethical Leader of the Year Award honors a leader of the business community who embodies the strong belief in real-world practical application of ethical principles as a framework for personal and organizational decision-making and leadership. Nominees will be evaluated based on principles espoused by Bill Daniels during his business career including: Integrity, Trust, Accountability, Transparency, Fairness, Respect, Rule of Law, and Viability.
