King Arthur Flour, founded in 1790, is America's oldest flour company. However, the company's approach to social impact, executive leadership, and stock ownership is very different from the vast majority of traditional corporations.
In this interview, LIFT Economy partner and worker-owner Ryan Honeyman interviews King Arthur Flour's three co-CEOs: Karen Colberg, Suzanne McDowell, and Ralph Carlton. They describe why they consider King Arthur Flour to be "America's oldest startup" because of the company's innovative leadership structure and 100 percent employee ownership model.
