Nine Doherty representatives (including both owners, Tim and Valerie Doherty) attended a formal luncheon on Thursday, June 11, 2015 at The Depot in Minneapolis to celebrate their achievement with fellow recipients.

“Achieving Top Workplace designation for the second year in a row is a truly outstanding achievement for our company,” said Chief Executive Officer and Co-Owner Valerie Doherty. “Tim and I started this as a family business and throughout 35 years of growth and expansion, we’ve strived to keep the ‘family’ atmosphere at work. Our business is people, so we understand that each of our employees is an extension of our company. When our staff feels like family, they’ll take care of our customers like family!”
