The Greater Minnesota Partnership (GMNP), an advocacy organization staffed by Flaherty & Hood, is one of the 2014 recipients of Finance & Commerce magazine’s “Progress Minnesota” awards.

The Progress Minnesota awards program recognizes individuals, groups and companies that are driving business and industrial growth in unique and innovative ways. The award honors entrepreneurs and organizations from across Minnesota who, by their investment of time, energy and ideas, have made a significant impact on job creation, business development and the overall economic health of the state.

Dan Dorman, a Flaherty & Hood lobbyist and executive director of the GMNP, accepted the award on behalf of the GMNP at a reception held April 10 at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis. The GMNP was among 27 honorees to receive the award this year.
