OREANDA-NEWS. An independent national survey has named Consumers Energy as a "Most Trusted Brand," ranking it fourth in the nation among providers of electricity and natural gas among residential customers.
"We are focused on delivering an exceptional customer experience to the 6.7 million Michigan residents who count on us for electricity and natural gas every day for their homes or businesses," said Patti Poppe, Consumers Energy's president and chief executive officer. "We feel honored that our customers are telling us we are doing well, and we will strive to do even better as we look to the future."
The new results were released by Cogent Reports, a division of Market Strategies International, and are based on residential customer surveys. Forty-four energy utilities nationally were named as "Most Trusted Brands."
Consumers Energy this spring also was ranked as Michigan's best place to work by Forbes magazine and was recognized in Michigan and nationally for its commitment to providing job opportunities for military veterans.
"Our commitment to our triple bottom line of people, planet and profit means that we keep our promises to our customers, communities, co-workers and shareholders," Poppe said.
