SEVILLE, Ohio, Oct. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Panther Expedited Services, Inc. was awarded the NorthCoast 99 Award on September 14, 2011. NorthCoast 99 (www.northcoast99.com) is an annual recognition program that honors 99 great workplaces for top talent in Northeast Ohio.
“Panther has truly exceptional people and we are honored to be recognized with this award,” said Andrew Clarke, President and Chief Executive Officer at Panther. “I want to thank all of our employees for making Panther one of the top places to work.”
To qualify, a company must send in a Branding and Culture Submission, complete with Employee Handbook and recruitment materials.

Developed in 1999 by ERC, a leading Human Resources program in Ohio, the program has evaluated thousands of organizations for their ability to maintain great workplaces that support the attraction, retention, and motivation of top performers.
