WINTER PARK, FL –  PCE Investment Bankers, Inc., a leading financial services firm for mid-market companies, is pleased to announce that the shareholders of Tri-City Electrical Contractors, Inc. (Tri-City) have transferred an interest in the company to the Tri-City Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) Trust.

PCE guided Tri-City through the feasibility study, providing them a roadmap of their options, and then through the ESOP formation process including raising capital.

“We consider our employees to be our greatest asset and we have always rewarded them for good performance. This is consistent with that philosophy, while offering them an additional vehicle for retirement planning. It also helps with organizational performance and provides a strong succession plan for Tri-City,” stated Jack Olmstead, President of Tri-City.  Mr. Olmstead continued, “The team at PCE was vital to the successful implementation of the ESOP and we enjoyed working with them through the process. ”

Will Stewart of PCE commented, “Tri-City and its shareholders were great candidates for an ESOP transaction.  The way they treat their employees and the loyalty they receive in return made the ESOP a natural fit and we were honored to help them through the process.”
