Employee Owned (ESOP)

McGohan Brabender is Under New Ownership – Its Employees!

When Pat McGohan founded McGohan Brabender in 1972, his dream was always to have an organization that outlived him. That passion carried forward and grew deep inside every shareholder.

Through our nearly 50 years in business, McGohan Brabender has been built by people, for people. Everything we value in life begins and ends with people. Our passion for remaining fiercely independent has allowed us to make faster, stronger, and better decisions in service to you.

You have always treated McGohan Brabender with respect, and we value the relationships we have built over the years. The fingerprints of our customers past and present who have passed our doors are the anchors that led us to become an ESOP – an employee-owned company. McGohan Brabender’s “Owning Our Future, Together” is about YOU! ¬†With dedication, resolve, and resilience, we can continue our quest to build a bigger, brighter future for everyone we encounter.

We thank you for your trust and commitment to our organization, to us as individuals, and to our communities. We are excited about this next chapter of McGohan Brabender and look forward to Owning Our Future, Together.

In June 2021, MBers were informed that they were officially owners under an ESOP, or Employee Stock Ownership Plan. Our leadership thought it was important to have a permanent record of the history of MB, which led to this sit-down discussion with Founder and Co-Chairman, Pat McGohan; Co-Chairman, Tim Brabender; CEO, Scott McGohan and President, Mike Suttman.

During our ESOP celebration, these four shared the humble beginnings of MB and it’s journey to where we are now. We would like to take you along for the ride and share these videos during our 50th Anniversary year. Take a look at our debut video and learn why Dayton, Ohio is so special and how our legacy was born…
