In the Community
Our success can be attributed to the quality of our building construction, a premium location, and strong business and personal ties to our community. We have been part of the Lakeland, Florida and Central Florida community for more than 55 years.
As a result, our team members are committed to giving back to the community by getting involved in leadership organizations, civic associations, business functions, local charities, and neighborhood events. We are happy to pay it forward to the community and share in our success.
Our founder Joe P. served the community on both local and state levels, as County Commissioner and Mayor of Lakeland, Chamber of Commerce President and Enterprise Florida Board of Trustees Member, to name a few.
Greg Ruthven’s contributions include being an Executive Board Member of Central Florida Development Council and Tampa Bay Partnership, as well as President of Polk Museum of Art, and Past President of Rotary and Central Florida Speech and Hearing.
Joe L. Ruthven has served on the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce as Chairman and a Board Member, Board of Directors Member and Treasurer of Historic Polk Theater, and Board Chair and Board of Directors Member of Central Florida Speech and Hearing Center.
Matt Ruthven remains actively involved as a Member of the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, Lakeland Associations of Realthors, and Board Member of Peace River Center and the Salvation Army.
Each team member is 100% committed to giving back to his community both professionally and personally. It’s been that way from the very beginning and what we’ll continue to do as we move forward. We are grateful to everyone who has helped get us where we are today, and give thanks by supporting the community that’s helped us grow.
From health centers and hospitals to the arts, to economic development, education, religious and children’s organizations, The Ruthvens are more than happy to return favor.
