23: Executives of Pittsburg Tank and Tower Group
/

Please join us as we interview executives, Ben Johnston, Eric Gardner, and Chris Johnston, from Pittsburg Tank & Tower Group headquartered in Henderson, KY. PTTG designs, builds, and maintains tanks, communications towers, and support systems for our nation’s infrastructure. PTTG plays an integral role, not only in our nation’s infrastructure but also in 67 other countries around the world.
PTTG is okay with being old school with many facets of their company except for one, their employees. In 2021, the Johnston family graciously created an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan), transferring ownership to their employees and impacting their lives in an incredibly huge way. This is just one example of many that makes PTTG great. Great for their employees, their community, and great for Kentucky.
