2020 in Hindsight and the Next 40 Years of the NCEO

Loren joined the NCEO in 2005 and became its executive director in 2010. He writes extensively on employee ownership and has spoken at events around the world. Since entering the field in 1995 as a consultant, he has worked with hundreds of companies. His expertise includes ESOPs, equity compensation, best practices for employee ownership companies, research, effective communications, employee motivation, corporate governance, ESOP transactions and operations, and business literacy.

This video is my look back at 2020. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to join me for a short trip into the recent past, because this video is my way of saying thank you.

In the video, I mention there are links to some of the projects I highlighted. Here they are:

I also mention that the NCEO is in the midst of celebrating our 40th birthday! You’ll see a bit of hoopla about that in 2021, and you’ll also see some of the extraordinary projects staff has in the works. As always, our goal is to make employee ownership thrive: we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished in the last 40 years, and we’re excited about our upcoming projects for the next 40 years.

The NCEO only exists because of you, our members. Whether you engage with us rarely or weekly, you are the creative force that makes employee ownership real. Employee ownership doesn’t create successful companies and financially secure employees by magic – it’s your hard work and constant innovations that create the success that’s then reflected in the statistics. You make employee ownership a thrilling field to be in. Thank you.
