Building an Effective Board of Directors for an ESOP Company

Meeting Description:

When a founding entrepreneur is running a company as the CEO, there isn’t much doubt about where ultimate authority lies. The founder/owner/CEO is the boss!  End of story!


But who makes the big decisions after the founder has sold to an ESOP?  For ESOP companies, it’s essential that they have a strong and effective board of directors.  That’s where the authority to make the big decisions must reside.  But who are the right people to serve on a board?  And what exactly should they do – and not do?  Get answers here. Reminder: our speaker will be joining us from the west coast; this webinar will be begin at 11 am EST.
