Acadian Ambulance has a fascinating story. It grew from humble beginnings to one of the largest and most influential private ambulance services in the nation and among the largest employee-owned companies in the United States. From the structuring of its employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) to its policy of generously giving back to the community, Acadian stands out as an organization that takes care of its providers and partners in addition to its patients.
In this session, Acadian CEO Richard Zuschlag, recipient of the 2016 Pinnacle Lifetime Achievement Award, will tell how the company he started became the Acadian we know today while staying true to the same values it was founded upon more than 45 years ago.
