TraVek Remodeling in Scottsdale is One of Twelve Finalists for the Prestigious 34th Annual Sterling Awards 

Scottsdale, Arizona (September 26, 2019) – TraVek Remodeling is pleased to announce that they have been nominated as one of the finalists for the Sterling Awards. They are one of three local businesses in the Small Business Category. This is the 34th year the Scottsdale Chamber has recognized local companies that have demonstrated excellence, innovation and community stewardship with this award.

Doreen Reinke, Scottsdale Chamber Board Chair commented, “We are proud to bring the Sterling Awards into its 34th year celebrating businesses in Scottsdale. The Sterling Awards is one the Chamber’s most time-honored signature events recognizing the people and organizations who have demonstrated excellence, innovation and community stewardship making Scottsdale a great community and workplace.” 

The 2019 Sterling honorees will be revealed at a luncheon on Friday, November 15th, at the Embassy Suites Resort in Scottsdale.

"This is a real honor to us because we know that the City of Scottsdale is filled with great businesses that are making great contributions to our community. There would be so many who would deserve this, as well, and knowing this, we feel very humbled and very excited," said Susan Raisanen, Director of Marketing at TraVek.

“The Sterling Awards recognize the great accomplishments of businesses in Scottsdale,” said Mark Stanton president & CEO of the Scottsdale Chamber. “The honorees represent innovation, success and the highest standards of business practice excellence,” he said. 

The process leading up to the award ceremony is quite involved and requires a great commitment from many people. There were 6 judges that came to TraVek for a presentation about the company, its Mission, Vision, Values, and Goals. There were questions about its culture and the people who are employed as well as the clients it serves, and questions about associations, impact, and contributions to the community. They also asked TraVek about adaptability and responding to economic changes in the industry, as well as innovation in running the business. The winner will not be known until the Awards Luncheon; however, leading up to that point, each judge independently scores the companies he or she visits and then the points will be tallied to determine the final winner of each category.

TraVek, Inc. is in the SMALL BUSINESS category (6-99 employees) - Sponsored by Cox Business Recognizes a small company demonstrating innovation, quality, professionalism, and commitment to the community. 

The other finalists in this category are Casago and Windom Security Strategies Today.
