Assistant Corporate Secretary, Wisconsin Energy Corporation
My Role in Shareholder Services
I make an honest effort to manage the shareholder services function, annual meeting/proxy statement planning, and relationships with our service partners (transfer agent, printers, etc.). I also dabble in our corporate ethics and compliance program and the corporate secretary function.
Why I Joined SSA?
One day I came to work and was given a new challenge: manage shareholder services and do it in addition to your existing tasks. I had to quickly understand the function, from the basics to the complex. I needed to find the experts, but also wanted to network with others who were new to the profession. I looked at other organizations, but the SSA fit the bill.
How the SSA helped me
I am still learning but I have more confidence in what I am doing. I have people to turn to when I need help. And, I have saved money for my company.
Best SSA Memory:
"Sure, I would be happy to help with the website!" Wait, that may be my worst memory.
I like governance, compliance and the pace at which things change. I am not an expert at anything.
More About Me that I don’t Mind Sharing: (hobbies, personal interests, favorite recipe, favorite sports teams, photos, favorite links, etc.)
I am very good at lounging in my hammock. I don't like to karaoke. I am on the Board of the Red Cross. Give if you can. The hamburgers at Krolls are outstanding as is the football team that plays across the street. If you are sad, click on "The Original Kroll's Hamburger" and just stare at the picture; it will make you happy. I'll share more once we get to know each other better.
