My Role at IOE Services Inc.
As President of IOE Services, I provide Inspector of Election services to companies under a service contract with BROADRIDGE Financial Solutions Inc. In addition to acting as Inspector of Elections, I leverage my 45 years of experience in stock transfer and proxy processing to help companies with industry issues.
Why I am an SSA member
When I first joined the Association, I was new to the industry and had a lot to learn. Being a member of the SSA (CTA way back then), allowed me to pick up the phone and ask other members for advice on a variety of issues. This was a great benefit to me and helped me in my job at IBM. I encourage all SSA members to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge available to them through the Association.
What I enjoy most about being an SSA member
I have been a member of the SSA for more than 40 years and have enjoyed the many personal friendships formed over the years and being a member of the SSA allows me to continue to learn about the issues facing our industry.
A little bit about me
I worked for IBM for nearly 30 years and held various positions in their Shareholder Relations Department including Manager of Stock Transfer and Manager of Shareholder Information. It was during those years at IBM that I was President of this great Association. After retiring from IBM, I joined ADP Proxy Services, which later became BROADRIDGE Financial Solutions (BROADRIDGE). As their Corporate Liaison, I provided proxy processing solutions to transfer agents, proxy solicitors and more than 1,500 public companies with the largest beneficial shareholder accounts. I am very grateful to the SSA for presenting me with the “TONY FIREMAN” award for my contributions to the industry.
