The Conversation Series was designed to introduce Chamber members to business leaders and their philosophy on work, life, and, in this case, what it’s like to work with family. Join us for a glass of wine and an intimate conversation with Meathead Movers’ Aaron and Erin Steed, and executive editor of The Tribune, Sandy Duerr.
Meathead Movers has redefined what it means to be a moving company. They have come to embrace that their business doesn’t have to be defined by their industry. They understand that 98 percent of their employees will move on to other careers, therefore they sit each one down to discuss where they see themselves in the future, and map out how to get there. They also managed to use the service they provide to help people in need, launching the #MoveToEndDV campaign in 2015, providing moving services to domestic violence victims, free of charge.
Aaron Steed, Meathead Movers president, co-founder and CEO
Aaron was 17 in 1997 when he founded Meathead Movers with his brother Evan. Since then the brothers have built one of the fastest growing companies in the nation, five times on the Inc. 5000 list, and have been honored at the White House and the United Nations for multiple Empact 100 awards, a collection of the top 100 companies started by young entrepreneurs.
