Faraci Lange was announced the winner of the 2019 ETHIE Award at the Rochester Area Business Ethics Foundation's annual Awards Ceremony held this week.

The ETHIE Award is presented every year by RABEF to organizations that strive to promote ethical principles in their business. Finalists are selected after a rigorous application and interview process which is analyzed by an independent panel of judges.

This year's award ceremony held at Geva Theatre celebrated seven finalists from around the community, among which Faraci Lange and Gorbel were selected as winners.

"Faraci Lange is honored and grateful to receive this award. It is indeed gratifying to be recognized for endeavoring as a firm to always do the right thing, even when it is hard, and uphold the highest ethical standards," stated Faraci Lange Managing Partner Stephen G. Schwarz.

"We are fortunate to live in a community that has a volunteer organization like the Rochester Area Business Ethics Foundation that, through extensive efforts of volunteers, promotes and rewards business ethics. All of the finalists were extremely impressive and deserve recognition for their commitment to maintaining the highest ethical standards and we are humbled to be chosen this year from among such a great group of finalists."
