Message from the President
It is with extremely mixed emotions that I have announced my retirement effective February 28, 2017. Thirty years has passed so quickly that it is hard to comprehend.
I leave behind a very capable staff that is more like a family than co-workers. The BBB Board of Directors is an indispensable asset for the success of your BBB. My replacement, effective March 17, 2017, will be Tony Binkley, a current employee, and very capable of continuing to lead the BBB to even higher achievements. So, what I am saying is that you will be in great hands from all aspects of the organization.
So many changes have taken place since I started 30 years ago. All aspects of our system have been streamlined to better serve you, our Accredited Businesses. I want to thank everyone for your support all these years, but even more special to me are the friendships I have developed with many over the years. I am going to miss all of you! May God Bless each of you!
With Eternal Thanks,
Jerry A. Tipton
Merry Christmas from Your BBB
This year, especially, let’s all give thanks for the blessings of life. Please keep the people of Sevier County in your prayers as they struggle to rebuild their lives after the devastating forest fires.
Thank you all for being part of the BBB of Greater East Tennessee. May 2017 be a blessed year for you and your families!
Jerry A. Tipton
