Leonards Express ETHIE Award Finalist

What's an "ETHIE Award"?

The Rochester Area Business Ethics Foundation sponsors an annual program to recognize organizations that exemplify the highest standards of ethical behavior in their everyday business practices as well as for their responses to crises and challenges.

After being nominated for the award, there were several interviews with our employees and visits to our Farmington based operation, and later a shooting of the attached video.

Leonards Express was second only to Lewis Tree Services in the Large Company category. The other finalists for the award were Hart Hearing Centers, Tipping Point Communications, and Triplett Machine.

We were also featured in the October 14th Rochester Business Journal, which was distributed at the October 17th ETHIE Award Ceremony at the Geva Theatre.

While we were disappointed not to receive the award, we were honored to be selected as a finalist. The award is all about "Who we are" rather than "what we do". Being a finalist says a great deal about the character of the people we have at Leonards Express.
