LAN Systems honored with Atlanta BBB Torch Awards

Norcross, GA, May 19, 2011- LAN Systems was honored with the Atlanta BBB Torch Award for Community Service and first runner-up for the Customer Service award.

The Torch Award honors companies who are leaders in marketplace trust. Each Torch Award winner embodies BBB’s vision of an ethical marketplace where buyers and sellers trust each other. Torch Award recipients, both for profit and non-profit, value honesty, respect, integrity and transparency in daily business transactions.

“LAN Systems is thrilled and humbled to receive the BBB Torch Award for Community Service,” said Mary Hester, Chairman and CEO.  “This highly sought-after and coveted award expresses a company’s commitment to the community. We are deeply appreciative.”

BBB’s annual Torch Award luncheon was held on May 19th at Villa Christina in Atlanta, Georgia where the 2011 Torch Award winners and first runner ups were announced. Mr. John Sours, Administer for the Governor’s Office of Consumer Protection, was the keynote speaker. Twenty-nine companies of excellence competed in three categories: Marketplace Ethics, Customer Service and Community Service. Categories were based on the number of employees. Winners were chosen from a panel of three judges who are experts in the field of ethics.

“LAN Systems supports and encourages volunteerism.  We applaud the efforts of our employees to work in the community,” said Terry Hart, COO. “Our employees are given the opportunity to volunteer in the events we organize and select causes of their own.  Whether during working hours, after work or on the weekend, the LAN Systems employees have consistently shown their dedication, commitment and enthusiasm for programs that give back to our community.”
