VEOC Hires Aplomb Consulting — Two VBSR Members Team Up


VEOC Hires Aplomb Consulting to Boost This Effort

Dec. 21, 2017 – Burlington, VT – Vermont Employee Ownership Center (VEOC) today announced plans to more broadly publicize the benefits of employee ownership. VEOC has hired Aplomb Consulting to guide this effort, to include message refinement, business prospect identification, and proactive outreach.

“While Vermont is already among the top states in the number of employee-owned companies per capita, we believe we can extend our leadership,” said Don Jamison, Executive Director of VEOC. “The benefits to Vermont companies and our state’s economy are too great to not pursue expansion.”

“We see opportunity for more companies to learn that employee-owned companies outperform their counterparts,” said Jason Lorber, President of Aplomb Consulting. “With momentum growing for employee-ownership, we will craft strategies with VEOC to power more growth.”

The Vermont Employee Ownership Center (VEOC) is a statewide non-profit whose mission is to promote and foster employee ownership in order to broaden capital ownership, deepen employee participation, retain jobs, increase living standards for working families, and stabilize communities.

Aplomb Consulting facilitates change through strategic planning, organizational development, and communications. A former Vermont Legislator and Stanford MBA, Lorber works directly with CEOs, Executive Directors, and other leaders of businesses, nonprofits, and government agencies. Teaming up with Lorber on this work is communications and strategy expert Sara Munro.

Both Aplomb Consulting and VEOC are members of Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility (VBSR).
