April 12, 2017 (ST. PAUL, Minn.) - Patterson Companies (Nasdaq: PDCO) today announced it has been recognized with Special Distinction status on the Honor Roll for the 2016 Minnesota Census of Women in Corporate Leadership, marking the company's third consecutive placement on the honor roll and first time receiving Special Distinction recognition. The honor roll is produced by St. Catherine University School of Business and Professional Studies and the Minnesota Women's Economic Roundtable (MWER).
At the Women in Leadership Forum sponsored by Twin Cities Business magazine and St. Catherine University, Patterson Companies Chief Human Resources Officer Kelly Baker accepted the award on behalf of the company.
