Drake states, “Shareholders determine the outcomes and destiny of each public company. However, the management of many companies never speak to these institutional shareholders, and others make only limited efforts at communicating.”  Tune in to Bloomberg Television (as pd. prog) on September 6, 2014 at 4:30 pm ET (and corresponding CT, MT and PT) to watch Georgeson’s 21st Century Television segment.

In further discussing the importance of building shareholder engagement, Drake adds, “Most companies have big gaps in their knowledge about their shareholders, and what they do know is far too narrow.”

The CEO of Georgeson, William Jackson, was interviewed during a visit to Georgeson’s corporate headquarters. He points out, “We’re a leading provider of strategic consulting services for public companies. We have frequent engagement with these firms through our work with proxies for annual meetings, mergers and acquisitions, and hostile situations.”
