Fat Brain Toys Receives Omaha's 2008 BBB Integrity Award
BBB Integrity Awards Honor Ethical Business Practices
Omaha, NE, (September 26, 2008) - Fat Brain Toys received the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Integrity Award at an award ceremony at the Embassy Suites La Vista Conference Center on September 17th. These awards focus on demonstrated ethical business practices with key stakeholders including customers, employees and community at large, rather than a company's growth, profitability or popularity. The Integrity Award winners were chosen by an independent panel of business leaders and members of the academic community.
"The BBB Integrity Award Winners have shown that ethics and integrity are core values of their organization," said Jim Hegarty, president and chief executive officer, of the Better Business Bureau serving Nebraska, South Dakota and southwest Iowa. "The 2008 BBB Integrity Award Winners join an elite group of organizations that realize dealing fairly and honestly with employees, customers and partners are central to profitability and growth."
"Our company looks for every opportunity to over-deliver for our customers, so it's gratifying to see the hard work manifested in the BBB Integrity Award " said Mark Carson, co-founder of Fat Brain Toys. "The recognition is nice, but what better honor could there be than to be associated with Integrity?"
While Fat Brain Toys will shortly celebrate it's sixth year of operation, September also marked the opening of their first retail storefront in the Village Pointe South shopping center in Omaha, Nebraska.
