Fort Worth-based Apex Capital Corp is one of six businesses in Texas to receive a Better Business Bureau 2018 Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics. The awards were presented Feb. 11 during a BBB luncheon at Joe T. Garcia’s La Puertita.
Apex Capital is a full-service freight factoring company.
“We’re honored to be acknowledged for our ethical business practices,” said Sherry Leigh, marketing director at Apex Capital Corp. “At Apex, the foundation of our culture is to always do the right thing across the board. We strive for excellence and we are committed to making a difference in every way we can. Even as we continue to grow, the commitment to maintaining our ethical company values only strengthens.”
Apex Capital Corp was launched in late 1995 by David Baker and Dean Tetirick in a rented room on Cockrell Avenue in Fort Worth.
Apex Capital specializes in small to medium-sized trucking companies, buying freight bills and providing industry recognized customer service, credit checks and many other benefits to its clients, the company said.
On Dec. 3rd, 2018, Carrie A. Hurt, President & CEO for BBB serving the Heart of Texas, contacted Leigh to announce that we had won a 2018 Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics.
