ESOP Partners is a Premier Sponsor of NCEO's 2020 Employee Ownership Conference being held April 21-23 at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, MN.
ESOP Partners, an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) consulting and administration firm, has announced the successful completion of the sale of Bergen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling to its employees via an ESOP. An ESOP is a qualified retirement plan that buys, holds, and sells company stock for the benefit of the employees, providing them with an ownership stake in the company. Bergen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling has transferred 100% ownership of the company to its employees via an employee stock ownership plan.
ESOP Partners founder and president, Aaron Juckett, was recently interviewed by Insight Publications on a topic themed 'Pride in Ownership."
"More business owners are taking a look at ESOPs, and their popularity is on the rise. The two main reasons for the increase are transferring ownership without losing the company’s culture and the realization that ESOPs are a powerful tool to attract and retain talent — something many companies are interested in."
ESOP Partners promotes education around ESOPs (employee ownership) and provides third-party administration services to businesses.
In honor of Employee Ownership Month we have BIG news to share! We are proud to say that we have joined the ranks of approximately 6,600 companies that are owned by an ESOP.
Our purpose is to change lives through employee ownership. As our President and Founder Aaron Juckett says, what better way to achieve this than by establishing an ESOP and ownership culture and showcasing it to the ESOP community.
Committing to the new building and becoming an ESOP company are two ways that ESOP Partners is demonstrating a long-term commitment to the ESOP community. Earlier this year the company held a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house to celebrate moving into a new corporate headquarters. The building includes the Employee Ownership Training Center, which is used to educate the community about employee ownership and how it changes lives by creating wealth and sustainable employment.
