Dallas, Texas – 2013 has brought both success and continued recognition to the family of businesses that make up Shaddock Companies – the latest addition being Baylor University’s Family Business of the Year award. The prestigious honor accompanies a long list of prestigious honors extended in 2013, alone.
Baylor University’s Institute of Family Business celebrates this year as the 24th annual Texas Family Business of the Year awards selection. The awards program annually recognizes outstanding firms across Texas whose families demonstrate exemplary commitment to each other and to their community. Shaddock Companies takes this year’s title of “Large Family Business of the Year” alongside other well-deserving companies whose success despite a challenging economy continues to inspire other family businesses.
“Peter and I are honored to be recognized by such a prominent award,” said Bill Shaddock. “Our father received his undergraduate degree from Baylor and graduated from Baylor Medical School. I also received my law degree from Baylor School of Law. So, Baylor holds a special place in our hearts.”
The growing ‘family of businesses’ proudly credits each success to strong family values and practices. A ‘quality over quantity’ approach is a crucial component seen across all Shaddock Companies promoting a recognizable attention to detail by each employee in order to deliver exceptional service to each and every client they serve. Each business prides themselves for the extra time and effort they designate in order to get to know each client personally, finding every possible way to make their experience better.
Shaddock explained part of his philosophy by sharing, “Building relationships is a key component to our continued success both, personally and professionally. People conduct business with people they know, trust and like. Those relationships, combined with hard work and a dedicated team, have led Peter and me to achieve what we call ‘mighty large’ dreams. A strong set of values has served as the foundation upon which we have successfully built our family of businesses.”
Brothers, Peter and Bill Shaddock collectively own eleven entities that make up Shaddock Companies, which include Shaddock Development, Shaddock Homes, Shaddock Law Firm, Shaddock & Associates, Premier Surveying, Willow Bend Mortgage, Capital Title of Texas, United Tax Services, Cambridge Insurance Agency, First National Title Insurance Company, and the family of businesses’ latest addition, Willow Bend Commercial Capital. In addition to the two brothers, 12 total family members are among the 350 total employees that drive the services behind Shaddock Companies.
The awards ceremony will be held at Baylor University November 4, 2013.
