Appleton Group Wealth Management was one of thirteen finalists in the prestigious 2008 Torch Awards for Business Ethics and Integrity from the Better Business Bureau of Wisconsin.

The businesses, judged by an independent panel of nine business ethics experts, were chosen based on submissions that demonstrated excellence in ethical practices, service excellence, reputation, honest advertising, peer recognition, management practices and employee training in ethical behavior.

“These companies are fine examples of how ethical companies in Wisconsin should behave,” said Randall Hoth, president/CEO of Wisconsin BBB. “Their business practices make Wisconsin a better place to do business, and I applaud their commitment to ethics.” Appleton Group Wealth Management received the runner up award in category II (6 to 50 employees).

“Being recognized once again by the Wisconsin Better Business Bureau says a lot about how we seek to treat our clients, and where our heart truly lies. We’re proud of how we operate our firm, and we remain as committed as ever to treating our clients with the respect and care that they all deserve,” said Mark Scheffler.
