Tractor Supply recognized for diverse leadership

Tractor Supply Company has been named a Winning ‘W’ Company by 2020 Women on Boards for achieving at least 20% women on its corporate board before the year 2020.

Tractor Supply has been recognized by 2020 Women on Boards as a Winning ‘W’ Company every year since the award’s inception in 2011. Through this consecutive recognition, Tractor Supply has been consistently named to the 2020 Women on Boards’ Honor Roll.

“Tractor Supply is honored to be recognized by 2020 Women on Boards for the strong female representation on our Board of Directors,” said Cynthia Jamison, Tractor Supply’s chairman of the board. “Diversity and inclusion continue to be important values to Tractor Supply, and we are proud of the diverse breadth of our board including gender, experience, industry and age that we have guiding the future of our company.”

The Tractor Supply Board of Directors is comprised of nine members, three of whom are women: Cynthia Jamison, Edna Morris and Denise Jackson.

Jamison, chairman since 2014, and Morris are the two longest-serving directors on the board.

Winning ‘W’ Companies are cited in the 2020 Women on Boards (2020WOB) annual Gender Diversity Index, which tracks the numbers of corporate board seats held by women among the Russell 3000 Index.

"We applaud Greg Sandfort and the board of Tractor Supply for engaging the diverse opinions and perspectives of both genders on their board," said Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire, CEO of 2020 Women on Boards. "Studies have shown that the varied perspectives of women are uniquely valuable to corporations and the challenges they face today.”
