New Year = New Digs in Milwaukee

Moving Day!

In June 2015, I moved to the greater Milwaukee area to launch a new DISTek office.  At the time, I was the only employee in the area but we wanted a temporary office we could use to accommodate our growth prospects in this region.  We managed the “growth” reasonably well, growing to 8 employees here … but the “temporary” extended a little longer than expected.  Though we started with a 14-month sublease, we ended up staying for three and a half years.  That all changed in December when we moved to a new office location.  We packed up everything during the end of November and the first part of December, then made the move on Friday, December 14.

An Employee Owner’s Review

Employee Owned

When last I wrote in this space, way back in February, I told of how I was starting to begin to really feel like an owner of the company. It had been over 3 years since DISTek founder, Matt Dickinson, decided to share a part of his company with his employees by forming an ESOP – an Employee Stock Ownership Plan. Yet none of us were handed a new job description with the title “owner,” but that’s what we are now – employee owners. And as each year passes, more information and knowledge about this whole ownership thing comes before us.

Not all work and no play: Friday Team Grill Out

Friday afternoons don't get much better than this!

It's not all work and no play around DISTek. Last Friday, we were fortunate enough to take advantage of one of the last hurrahs of summer and get out over the lunch hour to enjoy the beautiful weather. Our on-site team organized a lunchtime picnic-style grill out and all DISTekians in the Waterloo/Cedar Falls area were invited to attend and partake in team-building camaraderie and delicious food.
