Swiftwick, a leading U.S. producer of athletic compression socks, is proud to announce its CEO, Mark Cleveland, as the keynote speaker for the Middle Tennessee Better Business Bureau Torch Awards Banquet. The BBB Torch Award for Ethical Commerce is presented to businesses that take the extra step in upholding the BBB’s vision to create marketplace trust among consumers in businesses.
“We’re going to have a lot of fun,” said Mark A. Cleveland, CEO and co-founder of Swiftwick. “I’ll tell stories about my Grandpa, how he shaped my values, took me to the woodshed and made ethics a centerpiece in my life. We’re also going to highlight the best example of excellence in business and youth scholarship. So, join us.”
Candidates for the BBB Torch Awards are evaluated by an independent panel of judges from the business and academic community using standards developed by the Council of Better Business Bureaus. The banquet will be held on May 15, with a reception followed by dinner and the awards ceremony.
“We are thrilled to have Mark join us as we honor some of the best businesses Tennessee has to offer,” said Beth Furbush, vice president of The Better Business Bureau of Middle Tennessee. “When choosing a keynote speaker, we look for someone who runs a highly ethical organization that our audience can truly relate to, so Swiftwick is an ideal choice.
