"I encourage you and the bank to continue to provide technical assistance and credit to promote the ESOP approach within other countries you serve…. I am confident that Mr. Kurland would be very helpful to you in developing strategies for spreading ESOPs throughout the Western Hemisphere. That would be a very important step towards creating a common market for all the Americas and strengthening the bonds of friendship and commerce for all our people.”
"The participants found your presentation one of the most interesting of the program – many commented in their final evaluations that ESOPs were an attractive option for their countries.”
“One uniquely beneficial U.S. effort in Egypt…. the Alexandria Tire Co. recently became the first leveraged Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) in the Third World…. Such technical assistance that promotes democratic capitalism is the kind of stuff AID should be seeking to make its hallmark.”
"[W]ere it not for having met you, I am not sure whether Mid- South would be an ESOP company today. Not only do you continue to provide excellent services at reasonable prices, but you continue to keep us excited about the ESOP concept. I can’t believe that [over 30] years have passed since we created our employee stock ownership plan and became one of the first 100% Employee Owned, 100% Bank Financed ESOPs in the country.”
"[Y]ou’ve not only provided our company with expert administrative services, but more importantly you’ve instilled in our corporate culture a sincere form of fairness and equity that I believe will guarantee the success of our company for many years to come."
"[W]e appreciate your commitment to assist [Tanzania Harbours Authority] to adopt a ‘third way’ approach to privatization developed by your firm…. Your input at this stage is highly desired."
