BBB Torch Award 2016


Rod Martin's Complete Basement Systems has added yet another prize to the trophy case. The company was the recipient of the 2016 BBB Torch Award in the Large Business category on October 20, 2016. The event was held at the Infinity Park Events Center, where the Better Business Bureau honored all of this year’s semifinalists. The event featured keynote speaker and former Denver Bronco, Reggie Rivers.

While the company was a semifinalist for the 2015 BBB Torch Award in Denver, 2016 marks the first time Rod Martin's Complete Basement Systems has won the prestigious award. The BBB gives Torch Awards in five categories – Large Business, Medium Business, Small Business, Large Nonprofit, and Small Nonprofit.

According to the Better Business Bureau, “The Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics is the most prestigious award the BBB can present to a business or nonprofit.” In order to compete for the award, businesses and nonprofits go through an extensive review and interview process to demonstrate their commitment to ethics and excellence. An independent panel of judges grade companies based on five criteria, including management practices, community/investor/stakeholder relations, marketing practices, and industry reputation. These criteria are based on the standards developed by the Council of Better Business Bureaus for the International Torch Awards.

“We are incredibly honored to be recognized by the Better Business Bureau for their 2016 Torch Award,” said Rod Martin, founder of Rod Martin’s Complete Basement Systems, in an internal email to the company. “This award is about all of us. All of the great work we do as a company, and all of the great people we have here, this award is a testament to who we are.”

The Torch Award comes as a fitting endcap to 2016, in which the company’s focus had been on “Redefining” – both the community and the industry of the Denver Metro Area. “We are so unbelievably thrilled,” said Ryan Siggers, the Marketing Director and Quality Assurance Manager for the company. “Taking the opportunity to stand out above the rest of the people in our industry, and making every experience with the homeowners we work with an incredible experience is what is truly rewarding to us. I think winning the Torch Award proves that we are headed in the right direction as a company.”

The year 2016 has been filled with awards and accolades for Rod Martin’s Complete Basement Systems. In addition to the Torch Award, the company was the recipient of The Denver Post’s Top 100 Workplaces Award.
