Patterson Companies Announces Retirement Of Secretary And General Counsel Matthew L. Levitt And Appointment Of Jonelle R. Burnham As Successor

Patterson Companies, Inc. (Nasdaq: PDCO) today announced that Matthew L. “Buzz” Levitt, secretary and general counsel, will be retiring after more than 25 years with the company, effective at the end of the fiscal year, on April 26, 2014. Levitt will be succeeded by Jonelle R. Burnham, who is being promoted to the position of vice president, general counsel and secretary. Burnham’s appointment is effective on April 27, 2014.

“I want to acknowledge Buzz’s contributions to the growth and evolution of Patterson Companies,” said Scott P. Anderson, chairman and chief executive officer. “Buzz has provided Patterson with exceptional legal counsel over the past 25 years and is highly respected by our senior leadership team and employees, as well as his industry peers. We want to publicly thank him for his commitment and counsel in helping to make Patterson the company it is today. The entire Patterson organization wishes Buzz and his family all the best going forward.”

Burnham has served as Patterson Companies’ associate general counsel since 2009. Prior to her tenure at Patterson, Burnham held positions as counsel, assistant secretary and senior patent attorney for Kimberly-Clark Corporation, a global consumer brand company, and as an associate attorney in the Minneapolis office of the Merchant & Gould law firm. Burnham is also on the board of directors of Living Well Disabilities Services and The Lazarus Project, two Minnesota-based nonprofits. She holds a JD degree from Marquette University School of Law and a BCE from the University of Minnesota.

“Jonelle’s legal background, coupled with her knowledge of our business and demonstrated leadership skills, makes her the ideal candidate to manage this critical function for us,” continued Anderson. “We are confident Jonelle will be a valuable contributor to our future success as Patterson enters the next phase of our growth trajectory. On behalf of all of Patterson, I would like to congratulate Jonelle and we look forward to working with her in her new role.”
