THE TOVAR WAY
We were honored to be nominated by UPS and recognized by the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) as a Hispanic Business Enterprise 2015 Elite Honoree. The national convention took place in Houston, and is considered the largest gathering of Hispanic business leaders in America. Tovar is proud to support the USHCC’s recognition of Hispanic entrepreneurship and was please to attend the event as a guest of honor.
Being named one of The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® was an exciting accolade to accomplish in 2015. This annual competition identifies and honors organizations that display a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment. At Tovar, we put our people first and we are proud to accept this honor from the National Association for Business Resources.
Jeff Tovar, President & CEO Tovar Snow Professionals received the Minority Business Entrepreneur (MBE) Rising Star Award from The Chicago Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. (CMSDC). This premier organization helps increase business opportunities between major buying organizations and minority-owned businesses. Watch the video HERE.
Jeff's philosophy on supplier diversity is that in an ever-evolving world of cross-cultural societies, employees and vendors with various backgrounds are needed. It is these differences coming together with a common vision that allow us to provide world class services to our customers and make a positive impact on the communities in which we serve.
Charitable giving has always been a cornerstone of Tovar. We believe supporting multiple non-profit organizations helps us strengthen the ties to the communities we serve. Tovar’s Jean LaRocco partnered with The Home Depot Celebration of Service to serve our vets. She was sent to California to help rejuvenate and transform the grounds at Stuart Mesa and Santa Margarita Elementary Schools in San Diego County for the children who live on base at Camp Pendleton.
“Tovar Snow Professionals is proud to support The Home Depot Celebration of Service. Veterans and their families deserve to have safe and accessible living, and I'm honored to be able to give back to the community by working together with like-minded organizations,” La Rocco said.
New York Times bestselling author Jack Canfield, the mastermind behind “The Success Principles” and the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book series, helped us celebrate our 25th anniversary with inspirational wisdom to help us achieve even higher levels of business success. Canfield’s critical insight and compelling message resonated with our core value of continuous education.
