HDI member company Associated Bank has been recognized by Forbes as one of the 100 Most Trustworthy Companies in America!
Thanks to all the corporate controversies, CEO scandals, bailouts, and bankruptcies in recent years, investors have lost trust in some of the country’s largest public companies. However, even today, many corporations are models of openness and integrity.
To identify the most transparent and trustworthy businesses that trade on American exchanges, Forbes turned to GMI Ratings, a pioneer in the application of non-traditional risk measures for financial analysis.
“In order to rank companies from the most to the least trustworthy, we look at over 60 different governance and forensic accounting measures,” says GMI vice chair and chief executive James A. Kaplan. “Those companies that persistently display the most accounting transparency; have the lowest incidence of high-risk events; and have appropriate Board supervision are typically ranked the highest. Companies on this list reflect these practices.
See the full article on Forbes’s website. Also according to Forbes, Associated Bank is one of the 2,000 largest companies in the world.
Titletown HDI is honored to have two of Associated Bank’s valued employees bringing that same integrity to the Officer Board of our chapter. Do you know who? Meet our officers!

Each year, HDI awards the highest honors in the IT service and technical support profession, recognizing individuals, teams, and organizations that demonstrate the highest commitment and standards of excellence to their customers and to their organizations.
We encourage everyone within the industry to nominate special individuals for these prestigious awards. Who do you know who raises the bar of excellence in all aspects of customer relations, delivering superior service, and striving to perform above and beyond expectations? This program is designed to promote the profession by recognizing outstanding support analysts. All nominees and their companies receive local recognition. Local winners will go on to be considered for the regional competition in January.
Anyone can submit a nomination — manager, coworker, project team member — as long as at least one person from the company/site is an active HDI member. The nominee cannot be a member of the Awards Committee nor a Global winner in 2011. A maximum of two nominees per award, per company/site will be considered.
What are you waiting for? Recognize an exemplary employee or coworker today!
