“We have made it a priority to develop and attract leaders that reflect Patterson culture and values, and it is an honor to receive this recognition of our company commitment to diversity and equal opportunity,” said Scott P. Anderson, chairman and chief executive officer.
The Patterson media release reports that the company received a special distinction alongside three other Minnesota companies, including Target Corporation, Christopher & Banks Corporation and Select Comfort Corporation. All 13 honor roll companies reportedly were recognized in the April issue of Twin Cities Business magazine and at the Women Leaders Luncheon co-hosted by Twin Cities Business and St. Catherine University.
