"Transitioning to an ESOP model gives us the opportunity to reward many of our long-term employees for their commitment and hard work over the years, as well as attract new employees," said Mark Johnson, Lending Solutions chairman and principal stockholder.

LSI's ESOP will be administered by a committee working in conjunction with a third-party trustee and a third-party administrator. Lending Solutions hired Innovative Shareholder Strategies throughout the development and introduction of the ESOP.
