Thursday, September 29, 2022

Congratulations Torch employee-owners! This is a timely achievement as we celebrate our 20th anniversary year starting in October. Thanks to all of you as we celebrate and reiterate our commitment to finding ways to sustain and grow our 100% employee-owned ESOP now and for the next generation as an Evergreen-certified company. Your continued support and dedication to our customer’s mission and Torch Culture is a key part of our success as Team Torch.

A message from Torch Co-Founder, Bill Roark:

“Our goal for Torch was always to be a long-term 100% employee-owned ESOP company. We want to thank all our Starfish, Torch, and Freedom family for your commitment. We are all employee-owners. Our success as a company truly is about all of us working together. We look forward to the years to come. Together, we are lighting the pathway of freedom!”


The NCEO's 2022 Employee Ownership 100 list includes the nation's largest companies that are at least 50% owned by an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) or other broad-based employee ownership plan. Some like Torch are 100% employee-owned.
