Proud to be
100% Employee Owned
In 2012, Dansko was thrilled to become a 100% employee owned company through a new ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan)!
"In any business, employees are the life-blood, they ARE the business," said CEO and co-founder Mandy Cabot regarding the decision to move from a partially employee owned company to one that is 100% employee owned. "Through our employees, Dansko will learn, evolve and regenerate itself virtually forever, ensuring that we are able to deliver our brand promise today, tomorrow and for generations to come."
The West Grove, Pennsylvania based footwear company employs 180 people and has recently opened a new 200,000 square foot Distribution Center located near their corporate offices.
"This transition to 100% employee ownership marks the continuation of Dansko's commitment to its employees, its community and its values." said CEO and Co-founder Mandy Cabot at the announcement in January 2012. At the company wide celebration, every team member raised a glass and looked brightly to the future, as the toast was made celebrating our newly 100% employee owned company. And, and in keeping with a Dansko tradition, there were cupcakes for all!
