Minneapolis, MN (PRUnderground) July 31st, 2019
CEO Monthly, a UK publication read by 60,000 CEOs globally, announced today that Scott Petinga, CEO and Chief Troublemaker of the Minneapolis-based Scott Petinga Group, has been selected winner of their Most-Disruptive CEO award category of their CEO Excellence Awards. Petinga is a renowned socialpreneur, whose new wave of unique start-ups are charged with making a lasting, positive impact on society as an integral part of their business models.
“I believe today’s enterprises need to create value for society as well as their shareholders,” said Scott Petinga, who has founded over 14 companies and non-profits over the last decade. “What we’re doing at the Petinga Group is flipping business-as-usual thinking on its head and imposing an entirely new set of values that grow companies and benefit the world.”
Now in its fourth year, the Global CEO Excellence Awards recognizes the outstanding achievements made by leading CEOs from across the world. Award winners, like Petinga, are CEOs responsible for driving big changes while at the same time successfully managing the day-to-day operations within an organization.
“Winning this category is especially fulfilling for me,” says Petinga. “But I look forward to the day when being disruptive is the norm, and not something that needs to be recognized with an award. At the Petinga Group, we’re doing our part to make sure that day comes soon.”
“This awards program rewards the chief executives who are more than just role models for their employees,” said Katherine Benton, Awards Coordinator for CEO Monthly. “It recognizes those talented leaders who can also operate as motivators and innovators, with the vision and drive to take an enterprise to the next level.”
Aside from start-ups in fashion, including Charles Vane, Pariah Underwear and wynrr, Petinga is probably best known for his work for men’s health issues. A testicular cancer survivor, Petinga recently donated $500,000 to the University of Minnesota for men’s cancer survivorship research through his “TH!NK DIFFERENT Foundation”.
