Last month, Chesapeake was awarded the 2011 Torch Award for Marketplace Excellence. Winners of this highly selective award demonstrate a steadfast reputation for making ongoing contributions to their customers, employees, shareholders and community.

BBB Central MD noted our outstanding customer support team, highlighting how they responded during last year’s blizzards, when Chesapeake crews had to battle extreme conditions restoring phone service to a multi-site medical practice that had lost communications.

“Chesapeake takes the time to listen to customers’ needs and follows through,” said Angie Barnett, president & CEO, BBB | Greater Maryland. “It is hard to find a company that will sacrifice time and profits on behalf of customers and their community, but Chesapeake does. They look for the best technical solution for their customers, not the one with the best margin.”

We are deeply honored to have earned the Torch Award. Our team works hard, day in and day out, to earn the respect and loyalty of our customers, and we’re very proud of this achievement.
