MegaKC had our annual ESOP meeting in the Deramus Room at the Kansas City Zoo, where we have worked on many improvement projects.

Special guests Larry Ryan of Ryan Lawn and Tree and Dick Riegel, formerly of Burns and McDonnell, spoke to the team about the benefits of an employee stock ownership plan. MegaKC leadership followed up the message with great news: Our stock price rose nearly 11 percent since last year, thanks to the hard work and dedication of our employee-owners.

We recognized one of our outstanding employee-owners, Keelan Campbell, as Q2 Employee Owner Spotlight Winner. He earned recognition for his attention to detail and for going above and beyond at the job site and in seeking to improve his skills.

As part of our commitment to giving back to the community, MegaKC presented a donation to Kansas City Zoo Chief Administrative Officer Linda Falk.
