Combined Insurance Receives BBB Award for Marketplace Ethics
Receiving a Torch Award from the Better Business Bureau is an honor to selected businesses. Recently, Combined Insurance, a leading provider of individual supplemental accident, disability, health and life insurance products, received a 2017 Honorable Mention Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics.
“Companies receiving the Torch Award and honorable mention awards have distinguished themselves as businesses that operate in an ethical manner,” said Steve J. Bernas, President and CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois. “They know the importance of their customers, employees, community members and other stakeholders to their business’ success. This is at the heart of why the BBB conducts the Torch Award program. We want to encourage businesses to do their best because it benefits everyone.”
Combined Insurance’s Honorable Mention Torch Award was presented at a luncheon ceremony on November 16 at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare. Corey Williams, Vice President and Regional Director at Combined Insurance, accepted the award on behalf of the company.
“Combined Insurance is honored to receive this Honorable Mention from the Better Business Bureau of Chicago and Northern Illinois,” Williams said. “We are proud to be affiliated with such a reputable organization as the Better Business Bureau.”
Combined Insurance has received an A+ accreditation from the BBB for 63 consecutive years. Furthermore, Combined Insurance was a previous winner of the Torch Award. The company was founded in Chicago in 1922 by W. Clement Stone. With $100, a positive spirit and a vision to make the world a better place, Stone developed and grew the company into what it is today – still operating in the Chicago area and with agents throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
