Alexandria, MN, June 12, 2019—Geneva Capital has been named one of the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune.

Star Tribune’s Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from over 140,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.

Regarding the honor, Geneva Capital Founder & CEO Mark Watkins said, “First, I’d like to congratulate the team. People frequently ask what sets Geneva apart, and the answer is always the same: it’s the people. We’ve built something special over the last 19 years, and it simply wouldn’t be what it is today without each and every one of them!”

Built on a “work-hard, play-hard” mentality, the team at Geneva enjoys many unique benefits including casual dress, frequent team breakfasts, team happy hours and many family-friendly events throughout the year. In addition, the Geneva team remains extremely philanthropic donating time and money to various local causes and individuals in need.

While the ranking could only consider the opinions of Minnesota-based employees, Geneva is comprised of 57 full-time team members, seven of whom are based in various locations across the US. Nine summer interns also recently joined Team Geneva with focus areas in sales, accounting, marketing and administrative duties.

Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith said, “The companies in the Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota. My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies.”

To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Over 2,000 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses. A complete list of those selected is available at and will also be published in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section on Sunday, June 16.
