Nehemiah Manufacturing - 2017 Champions of Hope Honoree

Dan Meyer, founder and CEO of Nehemiah Manufacturing Co., just celebrated his company’s eight-year anniversary in mid-October.  Dan was recognized in 2016 as GCB’s Champions of Hope Honoree, exemplifying dedicated support of our organization through donations, sponsorships and employment of GCB clients.

Nehemiah was launched in 2009 with the goal of creating jobs for those hardest to employ: inner-city residents, low-skilled workers, people with criminal records and drug abuse histories.  Since then, the company has grown from 10 employees to 140, citing an annual turnover rate of 10-15 percent, a fraction of the industry standard.  Describing his business as a ministry, Dan says their mission – to build brands, create jobs, and change lives – remains the foundation for everything they do.

“I continue to support GCB because they’re touching people’s lives,” he says.
