Eric Shor is a partner with Tapestry Networks. His work is focused in the corporate governance initiative. He leads programs for directors who serve on the boards of many of the largest public companies in North America and Europe.
As a leader of several of Tapestry’s audit committee networks, Eric works with over 100 audit committee chairs to help them succeed in their roles. In recent years, Eric has led discussions for audit committee chairs with representatives from the Securities and Exchange Commission, Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, and European Commission. His work has addressed topics including committee effectiveness, special investigations, cyberbreach response, risk management, oversight of the internal audit function, the relationship with the external auditor, and tax reform. In addition, Eric has organized sessions for audit committee chairs to better understand emerging technology through visits to an audit innovation lab, a technology incubator, and a trucking company’s innovation center.
Eric also leads Tapestry’s work with compensation committees. Much of that recent work has been focused on the committee’s expanding oversight of human capital issues. He has led discussions on workforce transformation, including the use and implications of robotics and artificial intelligence. Eric has also addressed more traditional executive compensation topics including goal setting, long-term incentive plan design, equity plans, peer group selection, and the use of non-financial performance measures.
Prior to joining Tapestry, Eric was a litigator at Nutter McClennen & Fish LLP in Boston for almost a decade. At Nutter, Eric represented corporations in product liability, employment, real estate, and general commercial disputes and was part of trial teams that tried cases in California, Kentucky, Florida, and Massachusetts. “By representing companies of all shapes and sizes in my law practice, I learned that there is rarely a one-size-fits-all solution to a business problem. Working with Tapestry's clients and members provides an opportunity to bring unique perspectives together to address these kinds of challenges in a way that is different from how a company typically responds on its own.”
Eric received his JD, cum laude, from Boston University School of Law, where he was an editor of the American Journal of Law and Medicine and served as a fellow through the Rappaport Honors Program in law and public policy. He also holds a BA in political science from Emory University.
Eric and his wife, Mari, live in Needham, MA with their three sons, Gabriel, Spencer, and Hudson.
