“Working closely with our clients to develop retail-inspired yet functional apparel programs that help their staffs stand out, feel good and perform their jobs easily is the core of our work. It’s an honor to be recognized for the hard work, creativity and technology that goes into concepting and designing these winning programs – especially for so many clients this year,” says Todd McKeown, President and COO of Design Collective by Cintas. “It’s even more gratifying to have so many of our clients recognized after the challenges they faced the last 19 months during the pandemic. We’re humbled by their faith and confidence in us as we partner in their efforts to return to a more normal business environment.”
