Better Business Bureau recognizes Pioneer Services for marketplace ethics

The Pioneer Services office in Radcliff, Ky., was recognized by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) serving Louisville, Southern Indiana and Western Kentucky during the BBB's Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics luncheon Nov. 7. The office was a finalist in the "Very Small Company" category, and was noted for its ethical business practices in serving the military community at Fort Knox.

"This is not only an honor, but it also reaffirms that we're really doing things the right way at Pioneer Services," said office manager Ethel Curtis. "For Pioneer Services, treating all of our stakeholders—customers, associates, vendors—with the utmost respect and highest level of ethics is just the way we do business. As a company that works exclusively with the military community, we can't imagine doing it any other way."

In a press release sent out by the BBB, the organization notes that "the BBB Torch Awards recognize companies and non-profit organizations that have made a commitment to and exemplify ethics and integrity in the marketplace."

This is the fifth Pioneer Services office to receive BBB recognition in the past year. The office in Hephzibah, Ga., won a local Torch Award in September 2006; the office in Evans Mills, N.Y., won in February 2007; the office in Columbus, Ga., was a runner-up for its local Torch Award; and in September 2007, the office in Colorado Springs, Colo., won the Excellence in Customer Service Award, one of the most complex and stringent local BBB awards in the country.
