The corporation that is freshly formed can use this Shareholder Agreement to establish a functioning structure of the management of the corporation better.
A Shareholder Agreement is made between a corporation and its shareholders. This document is also known as a Stockholder Agreement. Here, the corporation and the shareholders define the bounds of the relationship between them. That means that the corporation sets out its expectations toward the shareholders' behavior and obligations, and the shareholders establish the set up for the major players in the corporation - these significant players include the shareholders themselves, the officers, and the directors.
Shares are representative of ownership, so the shareholders are technically the owners of the corporation. Officers are individuals who run the corporation's operational activities regularly. Standard officers in a corporation required by most states are a President, Treasurer, and Secretary. Most corporations also have one or more Vice Presidents to help support the duties of the President. Directors are individuals who contribute to manage the broader structure of the corporation and act on behalf of the shareholders. Directors help ensure a corporation is sticking to its stated mission and also often are the people that select the officers.
