Host Jesse Tyler, along with Bret Keisling, host of The ESOP Podcast and ESOP Minicast, is joined by Kerianne Geist, Marketing Manager at Andesa Services, Inc.
Kerianne shares personal insights on what ownership means to her; how she describes ownership when talking to family, friends, and strangers; the three words she uses to describe ownership; her EO A-ha moments; and why Andesa Services is a great place to work. There is also an emphasis on Andesa's BAFLE (Business Acumen, Finance Literacy and ESOPs) program as well as Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI.)
This is a companion episode to a conversation Jesse and Bret had with Ron Scheese, president and CEO of Andesa, and author of More Than A Company, which aired as Episode 203 on The ESOP Podcast.
Both episodes were recorded in April, 2022, live at The National Center for Employee Ownership's Annual EO Conference in Seattle, WA. We thank NCEO for making the recording space available.
The goal of this podcast is to have owner-to-owner discussions about a wide range of ownership experiences and culture topics, and to bring more insight into the individual ownership experience.
The Owner to Owner Podcast is produced by Bret Keisling for the EO Podcast Network.
