BEB Awarded BBB Winner of Distinction

2015 BBB Award of Distinction for BEBHouston – We are so proud to announce that Business Extension Bureau is this year’s recipient of the Houston Better Business Bureau’s Awards for Excellence.

Today we were presented with a Winner of Distinction statue as recognition of our company’s commitment to quality in the workplace and superior service to the community and businesses served. Less than .2% of companies in the Houston area are honored with this prestigious award!

Judges base their decision on 10 factors surrounding each business which include changes within an industry and how the company has adapted to those changes, how the organization stays on top of the latest processes, technology and trends, and how the business has contributed to the betterment of their industry.

Competition was fierce and over 1,000 people were in attendance of the sold out, main event held on May 13, 215 at the Bayou City Event Center.  We are honored to have received such a prestigious award

Everybody is back from a great show in San Francisco, CA.  NADA (National Auto Dealers Association) 2015 was fantastic and it was great to see so many of our valued clients in one place.  Thanks to everyone that made this year’s NADA 2015 one of the best yet!

Don’t forget that NADA is moving the convention date in 2016, breaking from the traditional January/February timeframe.  The 2016 NADA Convention will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada from March 31 – April 3rd.  Hope to see you there!
