Tencarva President Rod Lee said, “We appreciate the recognition of our efforts. Tencarva’s remarkable growth is due largely to the outstanding performance of our employees. We are a service business, and our reputation and success hinge on thousands of individual interactions with our customers. We are blessed to have very good employees and a low turnover rate. They make it all happen.”
