Event description

Description

Have you considered a succession plan for your business? It’s never too early to start thinking about your options. Employee ownership is fast becoming the preferred exit route for business owners.

Aimed at business owners considering an exit from their company, this session will give attendees the opportunity to hear sustainable seafood business Aquascot and reclamation company ERS explain what they considered in choosing employee ownership and how things have worked.

“Since we began our employee ownership journey in 2008, employee ownership has become the crucial element of Aquascot’s identity. For us, it represented a way of keeping the business based where it should be at the heart of UK aquaculture and protecting the long-term interests of everyone involved with Aquascot – supply partners, partners in the business, customer partners and the many people who enjoy our products". Dennis Overton, Aquascot

"This is the start of the journey. Most companies, especially in the service sector, are only as good as their employees, and employees are more engaged when they share in the company’s progress. All we’ve done is find a way to formalise what I’ve always considered to be an essential part of ERS.” Andrew Mackenzie, ERS

Carole Leslie from Ownership Associates, will talk through all ownership succession options before focussing on employee ownership and how to ensure the employee buyout is a smooth process.
