On July 11 I had a wonderful opportunity to meet the 3 Owners of Meijer Inc. The three Owners are from oldest to youngest: Hank Meijer, Doug Meijer and Mark Meijer. Two of the three brothers Hank and Doug are alumni from the University of Michigan. The brothers shared with us their experiences in working for Meijer when they were teenagers, the values that their grandfather and father Hendrick Meijer (companies Founder) and Fred Meijer instilled in them. They explained in depth the reasoning behind the decision to remain a family owned company.
