Big G Express is 100% Employee Owned
Founded in 1995 by brothers Pat and Jack Marsh, Big G Express formed as an extension of one of the oldest truck lines in the state of Tennessee; Goggin Truck Line. Big G Express started with just ten trucks, and within three years, there were 60 trucks. Patty Corley and David Nolan joined the ownership group of Big G Express in 1998 and the four continued a planned growth strategy to expand business.
In 2009, as part of a planned exit strategy, the four original owners formed an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) and sold 100% of Big G stock to the ESOP. Big G employees earn shares of stock in the company based on their years of service and compensation. Retirement accounts have increased significantly since 2009 as more shares are contributed (no money out of the employee's pocket) and the stock price increases.
