If you ask for recommendations for businesses in your area, chances are someone will suggest contacting the Better Business Bureau. Since its founding nationally in 1912, the Better Business Bureau has encouraged industries to self-regulate and establish trust with consumers in communities across the nation, including Evansville.
As a member of the Evansville BBB for more than 22 years, Popham Construction believes in the high standards set forth by the organization. “The BBB is a trusted source for potential clients to get a gauge on those businesses that conduct themselves honestly and most subscribe to utmost integrity,” says Pete Popham. “We joined based on our commitment to customer satisfaction. We knew this was an organization we wanted to be affiliated with.”
The Tri-State Better Business Bureau presented its seventh annual Business of Integrity Torch Awards on November 30, 2013, and honored Popham, along with two other business leaders, for his service to the Better Business Bureau’s Board of Directors.
Popham has been a member of the BBB Board of Directors for over 20 years. “It was quite an honor to be voted on and accepted as a new Board member over twenty years ago. The individuals on the BBB Board of Directors are a varied group of business people all dedicated to promoting the utmost in business standards.” He takes this commitment very seriously. “I feel my acceptance was due the industry I work in (residential and commercial construction) and the Board wanting someone who had a hands on approach to how these types of businesses should operate. I know how committed all those who represent the BBB are to the customer and also the business community.”
Popham’s twenty years of tenure on the Board of Directors underscores his confidence in the Better Business Bureau and its services. “When a company is a member of the BBB it means that company has agreed to uphold honest business practices and subscribe to a high integrity with all of their customers. Without the BBB many shoppers would surely not receive the best that is out there.”
