Baltimore, MD, November 10, 2015 — The Better Business Bureau of Greater Maryland awarded EZShield Fraud Protection the 2015 Torch Award for Marketplace Excellence. This honor recognizes businesses that develop and maintain the highest level of ethical standards with regard to all aspects of business operations.

BBB presented this award at its 18th annual Pillars of Trust event on November 3 at the BWI Airport Marriott in Linthicum, Maryland. Sponsored by 20 businesses within the Greater Maryland region and attended by nearly 100 business professionals, there was clear support for BBB’s focus on “advancing business with integrity.”

President and CEO of BBB of Greater MD, Angie Barnett, proudly informed the audience that this year yielded “a record number of nominations” for the Torch Award.

When presenting the award to EZShield, Ms. Barnett said, “…Under the guidance of CEO, Dale Dabbs, EZShield has achieved recognition by exercising their Core Values in every aspect of their business.  From their mission, to relationships, business practices, and all that they do.  EZShield, a Middle River based Baltimore operation, sets its bar high to keep customer information safe and their best interests at heart. Leadership leads by example. Accountability is key. Collaboration and communication are deliberate and fundamental to [their] success…”

“Receiving this important award reflects EZShield’s vigilant commitment to ethical practices, which is equally integral to our mission of thwarting some of the most unethical behavior impacting consumers: fraud and identity theft,” said EZShield CEO Dale Dabbs. “We have always held ourselves to the strictest standards within the industry and community to ensure we remain a trusted business partner.”

BBB assesses nominated businesses based on their ethical practices in every facet of their operations, from customer service to advertising and sales. Additionally, the awards committee evaluates internal and external business relationships and outreach, including consumer education and community involvement.

Exemplifying the Pillars of Trust that guide BBB and ethical businesses everywhere, Ms. Barnett said, “Everyone wins when you do the right thing for the right reasons.”
