New ESOP Webinar Video On ESOPMarketplace

Jack Veale, founder of ESOP Marketplace, recently gave a video presentation on behalf of the Ohio Employee-Owned Network, part of the Ohio Employee Ownership Center at Kent State University.

Mr. Veale’s presentation spanned 50 minutes and covered the topic of “Board evolution,” the way boards of directors evolve in concert with the company at large. The talk also covered typical board behaviors and the way they change over time.

The talk began with the basic principles of governance, such as ethics, introduced the ESOP life spectrum from birth to stagnation and death, and discussed the requirements and challenges that face a board of directors at each stage in order to maintain profitability and growth.
