The directors of AOK Events have announced that the company has become an employee-owned company, having purchased 65% of the company’s shares from AOK Events shareholders through an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT).
The company was founded in 2000 by Alex Hewitt and Jo Greenstock and this move not only secures the long-term future of the company and its employees, but also supports the ambitious growth plans that the award-winning events management company has for the future.
“The establishment of an EOT at AOK Events will provide great career development opportunities for all staff,” said Alex Hewitt. “Our brilliant employees will have collective control over their future as they continue to deliver incredible events to our roster of incredible clients.”
“Jo Greenstock, Giles Toosey and I remain 100% committed every day and we look forward to Dan Bull, Dan Wheeler and Charlie Tanner joining us to grow the business,” said Alex Hewitt. “Our brilliant Senior Leadership Team will take increasing responsibility for the day-to-day management of the business.”
AOK Events specializes in live events, corporate hospitality, location search, parties and fulfillment.
