CEO Coaching International Congratulates Client StoneAge on Becoming 100% Employee-Owned
MIAMI, Fla., Feb. 8, 2023 — CEO Coaching International, the leading executive coaching firm for growth-focused CEOs and entrepreneurs globally, is pleased to congratulate its longtime client, StoneAge, on its recent announcement that it is now 100% employee-owned through its Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP).
According to the press release, the Durango, Colorado-based company has been an innovator and leader in the waterjetting industry for over four decades, and their desire to remain headquartered in Durango motivated them to form the ESOP rather than entertain acquisition offers.
Siggins, who was recently featured on the cover of Real Leaders magazine, stated on LinkedIn: “Not only are we helping our employees create meaningful wealth by sharing in the company’s success, but we are also building a world-class culture of engagement and teamwork. We are creating a sustainable, forward-thinking company committed to improving the lives of its employees. Being employee-owned drives and shapes our daily work ethic, and we couldn’t be more excited to continue serving and innovating our industries as one united team.”
“I am thrilled for the entire StoneAge team, who will now be able to continue innovating and making BIG happen together as employee-owners of the company,” said Chris Larkins, the CEO Coaching International Coach and Partner who has worked with StoneAge for over 5 years. “I look forward to continuing my work with Kerry and her team as they operate in this exciting new ownership model.”
