Founded in 1935 as Georgeson & Company Inc., Georgeson emerged as the first ever proxy solicitation and unclaimed property services company and has since grown to be a global market leader in strategic shareholder communications and consulting services.
A 1999 merger established Georgeson Shareholder Communications Inc., which was acquired in 2003 by Computershare (ASX: CPU), the world's foremost transfer agent and investor services provider. Computershare renamed the company Georgeson.
For more than 80 years Georgeson has helped many of the world’s leading organisations maximise the value of relationships with their investors and stakeholders. Georgeson pioneered proxy solicitation advancements and the contemporary approach to small shareholder programs, becoming the first ever company to use telephone campaigns to reach large numbers of shareholders and creating proprietary programs to reunite shareholders with unexchanged or lost assets.
With offices in many of the world’s major financial markets, Georgeson remains focused on managing every step of the proxy solicitation process, with expertise to handle everything from standard shareholder meetings to complex solicitations.
