Women in BizThe Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal’s 14th Annual Women in Business Awards publication was released late last week.  Lynn Casey, CEO and Chairwoman of public relations firm Padilla Speer Beardsley Inc., was chosen as this year’s Career Achievement honoree and is featured on the cover. 

Padilla Speer Beardsley is the largest public relations firm in the area, according to the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal’s 2011 Book of Lists ranking the Twin Cities’ top businesses.  The company took in more than $15 million in net fee income last year, more than double that of its closest competitor.

The Opus College of Business is proud to count Lynn Casey among our alumni, and we congratulate her on her career successes and contributions to the Twin Cities business community!
