Benco Dental chosen as top company for executive women
September 18, 2017
The National Association for Female Executives earlier this year named Benco Dental one of the top 60 companies for executive women. Headquartered in Pittston, Pennsylvania, Benco received the honor for having women represent 33 percent of its corporate executives and 40 percent of its board of directors.
In January 2016, Benco appointed Karen Kuklewicz-Friar as chief financial officer, Julie Radzyminski as vice president of business innovation and Kari Taylor as vice president of sales. They are the first women to work in these positions. Also in 2016, the company founded the Lucy Hobbs Project, a program that provides female professionals with seminars, networking events and mentoring sessions.
