“Market Basket illustrates a fundamental and emerging new awareness: The best way to maximize shareholder value over the long term is to recognize and honor the mutuality of interest that all stakeholders have in the well-being of the enterprise. While this has always been true, our new era of transparency and stakeholder activism raises the stakes for business owners, and leaders, everywhere.” — Jeff Westphal, President, CEO and Co-Owner, Vertex Inc.
