“Paul’s expertise and insight on the intricacies of all things ESOP – specifically fiduciary matters such as IRS compliance – is unmatched. He has become an invaluable resource for our company as we transition into the unchartered territory of becoming 100% Employee-Owned.  He possesses an impeccable attention to detail and follow-through, and commands audiences of all sizes and types with his vibrant presentation skills.”

“A constant at both Regional and National ESOP conferences, Paul Horn is always an informed, inspiring, and most importantly, an entertaining presenter.  Paul’s vast experience in ESOP matters, from both “hands-on” at American Systems, and now as owner of WorkPlace Consultants, LLC, makes him one of the premier speakers at those conferences.  I always try to attend at least one of Paul’s sessions when attending ESOP conferences and have always come away with at least one new piece of information to consider.  Having served with Paul as a member of the ESOP Association’s Mid Atlantic Chapter’s Steering Committee and as an officer of the chapter, I know our chapter wouldn’t be the same without him.”

“Paul Horn is an excellent ESOP consultant with a detailed practical understanding of ESOPs.  He is an uncommonly good communicator with a valuable technical and practical background.  His practical experience includes operational responsibility of a large 100% ESOP as company benefits director where he actually had to make things work.   Paul’s legal skills also make him well-qualified to do work as an independent ESOP fiduciary. The ESOP Mid-Atlantic Chapter is fortunate to have someone this talented in a leadership role.”

Peter H. Briggs
Managing Director, Shareholder Strategies, Inc.

“Paul has been a cornerstone of the ESOP Mid-Atlantic Chapter for many years, providing creativity, expertise, and advice to hundreds of employee-owned corporations.  You will not find anyone better able to explain plan benefits and ESOP advantages to all levels of your employee population.”

Keith Robertson
Former Manager, Comsonics, Inc.

“Paul Horn is the “go to” person for practical ESOP advice.  He has tremendous experience as a government regulator, ESOP company benefits director, ESOP Association Chapter President and Committee Chair.  Paul is a dynamic speaker and his amazing creativity helps us put on fantastic ESOP Chapter conferences.”

“Paul is a true expert in the field of retirement plans and employee stock ownership plans.  He is very knowledgeable and able to convey his knowledge in a straightforward, down-to-earth manner in terms others can understand.  As icing on the cake, he is witty, insightful, personable and a lot of fun to be around.  I give Paul my highest recommendation.”

Laurie Dalton
