Animal Ag Alliance Stakeholders Summit Early Registration Discount Ends April 3
Representatives from Domino's and an investor engagement firm to speak
Tim McIntyre of Domino's Pizza and Kathryn Hembree Night of CamberView Partners will give attendees at the 2017 Animal Agriculture Alliance Stakeholders Summit advice for handling activist investors and responding to shareholder resolutions. The panel, titled "Extremists in the Boardroom: Responding to Activist Investors" is sponsored by the National Pork Producers Council and will be moderated by Lyle Orwig of Charleston|Orwig.
Orwig will lead McIntyre and Night through a conversation on how activist groups are connecting with investment firms as well as using the shareholder resolution process to pressure consumer-facing brands into changing their policies for suppliers of milk, meat, poultry and eggs.
Meet the panel:
McIntyre is executive vice president of communication, investor relations and legislative affairs at Domino's Pizza, Inc. McIntyre has been with Domino's for 31 years, serving in many communications roles. Founded in 1960, Domino's Pizza ranks among the world's top public restaurant brands with a global enterprise of more than 12,500 stores in over 80 international markets.
Night is principal at CamberView Partners LLC, which provides independent, investor-focused advice to help public company management teams and boards build strong, productive relationships with institutional investors. Previously, Night was an associate in the Mergers and Acquisitions Group at Goldman Sachs in New York.
Orwig is the founding partner and chairman of Charleston|Orwig, a communications agency with a special focus on reputation management, corporate social responsibility and sustainable development. He leads the agency's crisis communications work and continues to be intimately involved in working with clients.
As activist groups continue attempting to influence the policies of brands by purchasing shares themselves or reaching out to investment firms, it is essential for animal agriculture to learn how we can help our restaurant, retail, foodservice and branded company partners respond to these pressures and make informed decisions.
