Companies identified as True Blue Businesses deliver quality goods and services while demonstrating a strong commitment to their customers, employees, and the community. They act with honesty and integrity, are “true blue” and loyal to the people they serve, and often go the extra mile. In short, they are the companies that Dallas-Fort Worth can count on.
True Blue Businesses are approved based on information obtained through comprehensive interviews and research. The evaluation process involves input from principals, officers, management, employees, and customers to determine a company’s ability to consistently demonstrate the following:
- honesty and integrity in day-to-day dealings with customers, in the management of employees, in interactions with the community;
- responsiveness in resolving customer complaints, handling employee matters, and adapting to changing market conditions;
- and goodwill toward customers, employees, and the community.
“Having Foster Financial Group earn True Blue recognition is really an honor. There’s so much negativity in our world today, and so much mis-information; it’s good to be part of a program that recognizes those in our industry who operate with honesty and integrity,” said Joe Foster, an Ameritas financial adviser, whose been with Foster Financial Group since 1986.

We now assist businesses and their employees with financial planning and employee benefits,” Joe said. “But something that hasn’t changed is our philosophy, which is that you can only enrich your life by enriching the lives of others. And we only do for our clients what we would for ourselves in the same circumstances.”
Joe, who has earned the prestigious Five Star Wealth Manager Award three years in a row, believes in serving God, family and others and living the Golden Rule – which is the company’s foundation.
