Andy Green & Matt Flann of Pennard Vets on Their Experience of an Employee Ownership Trust
Pennard Vets have been treating animals at Pennard House, Sevenoaks, since 1895. They offer a family-friendly service in a caring and professional environment. Providing everything your pet should need and guiding you through the choices available. Over time, established practices in Tonbridge and Maidstone joined them and they also opened new branches in Borough Green, Allington and Langley Park.
On the first of March 2021 the Directors made a bold decision. Pennard Vets became an Employee Owned Trust, making them the largest veterinary practice of this kind in the UK.
They placed a majority share of the business in a trust for its employees, benefitting them all equally. After a year of uncertainty for the team with COVID-19 and rising to the challenge, they have been rewarded with the Employee Owned Trust. It is a commitment to the team, and to their clients ensuring they protect their independence and do not compromise on their values.
