3 January/February 2024 | THE DAVEY BULLETIN CONTINUING AN OWNERSHIP LEGACY This year Davey employees celebrate 45 years of employee ownership! In 1979, Davey employees purchased the company from the descendants of our founder, John Davey. The concept of employee-owned companies was fairly new at the time, and today Davey is one of the oldest employee-owned companies rooted in Ohio. The Bulletin will honor this milestone throughout the year. Make sure you also log on regularly to DaveyConnect for special anniversary celebrations there, and follow us on social media for more as we mark 45 years of employee ownership in 2024. WHAT'S YOUR EMPLOYEE OWNERSHIP STORY? To kickoff our 45-year employee ownership commemoration, we asked Davey Chairman, President and CEO Pat Covey about how he got started as an employee owner at Davey. Covey started with Davey in 1991 as an internal auditor. His journey to becoming an employee owner at Davey started shortly thereafter. Turn to page 4 to learn how and why our CEO became an employee owner. THE START OF EMPLOYEE OWNERSHIP AT DAVEY Have you ever wondered how Davey became employee owned? That story exemplifies perseverance and leadership. The new Davey history book Growth Rings tells the story of the employees who came before us and overcame many obstacles to achieve success and leave a legacy of employee ownership to today's Davey employees. You can buy Growth Rings online at ShopDaveyTree.com by clicking on the "Davey Books" section. For even more Davey history, also check out Green Leaves, published in 1977, under the Davey books section of ShopDaveyTree.com.
