Evergreen Private Capital Advisors Hosts Congressional Candidate Dan Seals


Mary Josephs was proud to host a very successful fundraiser and 'Introduction to the ESOP Community' for Democratic Congressional candidate Dan Seals for breakfast at the office of Evergreen Private Capital Advisors, LLC, in Chicago on Tuesday, October 26. The event was well attended by both ESOP professionals and companies, providing an exciting forum for chapter members to share success stories on how ESOP ownership drives strong companies, retains and creates jobs, and promotes retirement security. To the congressman elect's question "Why not more ESOPs?" we discussed lack of awareness, misperceptions, access to capital, treasury, DOL, and other viewpoints he may encounter in Washington. We look forward to bringing Dan home to ESOP companies in his district. Illinois ESOP Chapter President-Elect Art Miller, Holden Industries, is already looking to host Dan, and more so, supporting Dan in his education of and advocacy for ESOPs.
