Better Business Bureau of Central Oklahoma
Better Business Bureau® of Central Oklahoma (BBB) recently held a ribbon cutting to celebrate its remodel at 17 South Dewey in Oklahoma City. The non-profit has owned the building since the 1980s, but they are excited to start a new chapter with the remodel. President and CEO, Kitt Letcher, said, “We are turning a new leaf in 2016, and our headquarter redevelopment is a symbol of the change we’ve undergone the past few years and the new direction we’re heading.”
BBB of Central Oklahoma office celebrated its 85th birthday in 2015, which turned out to be one of its strongest years yet.
