How Do I List Employment When My Employer Was Bought Out Several Times?

by Nan

I have worked in the same location in different capacities for over ten years, but the company name has changed numerous times and has switched ownership three times. I want to properly reflect the name of the company when I held various positions, but I also want to ensure that the viewer of my resume knows that I have been a loyal employee and haven't willingly switched employers every 2 years.

Do you have any advice on how to illustrate other than: "Position X, Company ABC (Formerly DEF, previously XYZ)"?
