Alan Schumacher

Outside Director and Audit Committee Chair for Several Private Companies

“As a member of the Boards of Directors and Chair of the Audit Committees of several privately held companies, I have had the pleasure of working with Paul Marcela on corporate Board and Audit Committee matters between 2009 and 2013.  Paul is an outstanding professional.  He’s highly experienced and knowledgeable with respect to corporate governance issues, diligent, thorough and thoughtful.  Working with him has been a real pleasure”

Richard J. Francel

Former Controller, Dow Corning Corporation

“At Dow Corning, Paul Marcela was instrumental in assisting my staff and me in the preparation of the Company’s financial statement footnote disclosures on a quarterly basis.  These disclosures were uniquely complicated due to the Company’s silicone implant mass tort litigation crisis and eventual related Chapter 11 case.  Paul also provided the Company’s CFO and me with support for Board Audit Committee meetings and Corporate Finance Committee meetings.  In addition, Paul assisted the Company’s finance staff with the implementation of Sarbanes-Oxley practices and procedures in the private company context.  It had always been a pleasure to work with Paul who regularly demonstrated a steady, balanced and professional approach to fulfilling his corporate governance responsibilities.”

Gifford E. Brown

Former Vice President for Finance & Planning and Chief Financial Officer, Dow Corning Corporation

“When I was the Chief Financial Officer of Dow Corning, I had the pleasure of working with Paul Marcela on many corporate financial transactions.  These significant transactions invariably involved Board of Directors, Board Committee and internal Management Finance Committee approvals.  Paul always had a firm grasp of Dow Corning’s governance procedures and was instrumental in assisting me with respect to securing proper governance approvals at the appropriate organizational level in accordance with the Company’s transaction governance processes.  Paul was always diligent and professional with respect to his activities in support of good governance at Dow Corning.”
