The ESOP Podcast Episode 34 – Bob Whalen, CEO of Employee-Owned HB Global, LLC

Our guest is Robert “Bob” Whalen, President & Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of HB Global, LLC. HB Global employs approximately 750 people across three divisions of employee-owned mechanical service companies: HB McClure Company, IT Landes Company, and Nash Plumbing and Mechanical, with locations in Harrisburg, York, and Harleysville, Pennsylvania, and Wildwood, Florida.

Bob Whalen describes how their ESOP creates both a positive current working environment today and a retirement vehicle for the future. HB Global LLC practices open-book management and finds that it empowers every one of their employees to make a positive impact on the finances of the business.  An ESOP won’t turn a bad company into a good company — but an ESOP can make a good company into a great company.  Focusing on employees first helps HB Global outperform the marketplace.
