The Better Business Bureau of Wisconsin has announced the statewide finalists for its 2006 Torch Awards for Business Ethics and Integrity.

“These companies and charities have fostered an environment of ethics and integrity with their clients, employees, vendors, donors, industry and community, which in turn has led to their long-term success,” said Randall Hoth, president and chief executive officer of the Wisconsin BBB. “We’re proud — through our statewide ethics award — to shine the spotlight on them and give them the recognition they deserve.”

This year’s corporate finalists are: (1,000 or more employees) Alta Resources, Neenah, and Marshall & Ilsley Corp., Milwaukee; (100-999 employees) The Boldt Co., Appleton, and R.A. Smith and Associates, Brookfield; (11-99 employees) Batzner Pest Management, New Berlin, David Hobbs Honda, Glendale, and Kelmann Corp., Wauwatosa; and (1 to 10 employees) The Creative Co., Monroe, and Kerzner Remodeling & Construction, Oconomowoc.

The charities that are finalists are: Children’s Hospital & Health System, Milwaukee; the Milwaukee Center for Independence, Milwaukee; and Schlitz Audubon Nature Center, Milwaukee.

The finalists were judged by a statewide, independent panel of 11 business ethics experts.
