What Makes Us Special

MJ is a 100% employee-owned ESOP, which truly offers a unique opportunity. Less than 2% of all US corporations are 100% ESOP owned. The benefit of MJ being a 100% employee-owned ESOP is that our employee owners' extra efforts contribute to the results that we all share in. However, what we are constantly striving to accomplish at MJ is that the ESOP is much more than a benefit, it is our culture!

Chad Nixon

President and Chairman of the Board
Here at MJ, we positively impact peoples' lives every day. Whether redesigning a highway interchange to improve safety, renovating a building to improve comfort and energy efficiency, or implementing an in-house training seminar that allows our staff to grow personally and professionally, we take on the opportunity to make a difference passionately. We constantly challenge our people to innovate not just how we do things, but how we think. Every project we undertake has unlimited potential for innovations that can add value for our clients, the users, our environment, our employee-owners and our communities. Our mission is to maximize those opportunities for the benefit of all.
