Brinkman Partners, a Fort Collins construction and real estate development company formed by brothers Paul and Kevin Brinkman, is now fully owned by its 100-plus employees.

The company announced Wednesday night at a party at New Belgium Brewing Co.. that it was switching to an employee stock ownership plan, commonly known as ESOP.

The ESOP is a retirement plan often used to divide the shares of business owners into a trust, which then distributes shares among employee accounts, relative to their salary. Employees can access their stock when they leave the company or retire.
