CREATING A CULTURE WHERE EVERYONE THRIVES.
INSPIRED BY OUR VALUES
Founded by Steve Malcom in 1978, Knickerbocker Group has always been driven by the core values of strong work ethic, exceptional skills and ingenuity, consistent quality, personal integrity, and complete dedication to employees and clients alike. In 2017, Steve made the decision to transition the ownership of Knickerbocker Group to its employees through the formation of our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). While Steve continues to have an active role on the Knickerbocker Group management team, the ESOP places the future of Knickerbocker Group in the hands of the people who helped it grow and who will build on what he worked for 45 years to create.
BUILT FOR COLLECTIVE SUCCESS
At the core of our ESOP is the belief that Knickerbocker Group’s success is due to the collective hard work, dedication, vision, and passion of our employees. Our ESOP fosters a culture of trust, transparency, and accountability—encouraging employee engagement and productivity by providing a financial incentive to improve company profits.
CREATING A LASTING LEGACY
Today, we’re a full-service design firm that’s woman-led and 100% employee-owned. With ownership comes empowerment, and our team members think and act like owners: they listen, share, detail, create, and innovate—together—and carry a strong sense of pride and purpose. They’re also able to grow their personal retirement savings, at no additional cost to the employee, through our ESOP.
