Because more and more ESOP plan sponsors are adding “outside” Board members to their Boards, often on advice of counsel, leaders of ESOP companies need to be sure an outside Board member understands ESOPs, both the practical, legal, and operational aspects of ESOPs, and, very important, the unique cultural style that often exists in an ESOP company.
In The ESOP Association’s Outside Board Registry are the names and contact information for men and women who meet these criteria: they know ESOPs, and they know ESOP cultural style, and how it can vary.
Those who are listed under “Corporate” members have served on the Board of an ESOP company and/or as a senior executive of an ESOP company. Those listed under “Professional” members primarily provided services to ESOP companies and/or have served, or are serving, on the Board of an ESOP company.
All requested that they be listed on this one-of-a-kind Outside Board Registry sponsored by The ESOP Association.
As a member service, The ESOP Association provides this registry to companies who request names of those individuals willing to serve on a company’s board.
Members of The ESOP Association can be listed free of charge in the registry. To be listed, participants must be employed at or retired from a current ESOP Association member company, or be a current member of the Association in any member category.
There is no charge for the registry if requested by a member of the Association.
If you would like to be included in this registry, contact Sharon Spencer at Sharon AT esopassociation.org. A brief form will be sent to you.
The registry can be found on The ESOP Association’s websitein the members only section.
