Better Business Bureau Torch Awards for Marketplace Ethics Names the Bill Howe Family of Companies Finalist Third Year in a Row

Esteemed San Diego plumber, Bill Howe, and his wife Tina Howe, proud to represent ethical marketplace practices in local community

December 5, 2013 San Diego, Calif. – For the third consecutive year, the Bill Howe Family of Companies has been named a finalist of the Better Business Bureau’s Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics. The award winners were announced during an award ceremony held on December 3, 2013 at the Town & Country Resort in Mission Valley in San Diego. Plumber and businessman Bill Howe and his wife, Tina Howe, accepted the award for 2nd place finalist in the “100-249 employees” category.

WebIn its 16th year, the BBB Torch Awards honor companies that make as a priority in daily operations, the commitment to ethical practices, integrity and support of the San Diego marketplace.  To be considered for the award, companies must compile a nomination that outlines and proves their commitment to ethics in categories including management practices, community and stakeholder relations, communications and marketing practices, and industry reputation. A panel of judges reviews the submissions and grades each category on a scale of 1-10. While many of the businesses that are nominated for the award are in the San Diego heating and air conditioning or plumbing business, the award is open to businesses in any industry.

This years’ keynote speaker, George K. H. Schell, Chief Marketing Counsel for the North American Coca-Cola Company, spoke about how to achieve trust in the marketplace. He said “communication plus connection in context equals trust,” and that is something that every company can grow a foundation upon. Communication is of the utmost importance in business dealings and something the local San Diego plumber holds as paramount to their continued success.

The Bill Howe Family of Companies started with Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. in 1980 and now offers services in San Diego heating and air conditioning, as well as restoration and flood services. Since its inception, the company upholds their philosophy that to be successful they focus on ensuring the happiness of their employees, their customers and their community. Recently, the Bill Howe Family of Companies proved their philosophy has been a success when they moved to an office more than twice the size of the previous office, to accommodate their growing workforce.

“The Torch Award nomination process is something we look forward to each year,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “Compiling our nomination allows us to investigate, in depth, all the areas of our business;  where we are succeeding, where we fall short, and ultimately making us a stronger company for our employees, customers and community.”

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
