Barbara Baksa, CEP

Executive Director, NASPP

Barbara is currently the Executive Director of the NASPP, holding that position since 2005.

How long have you been a member of the NASPP?

Barbara: 14 years

How did you end up in stock compensation?

Barbara: I saw an ad in the paper by a company called "ShareData" that was looking for people to staff their stock option software support line. Being from the midwest, I had no idea that such a job existed or what stock options were (I had only the vaguest notion of stock market) but I thought it sounded really cool, so I applied.

What was your college or university major?

Barbara: English

Where is your favorite place to go on vacation?

Barbara: Hawaii but Tucson and Carmel are both a close second. I don't go very far on vacation.

How has being a member of the NASPP helped you?

Barbara: The NASPP is a great source of information and I am learning all the time from the articles we post, Conference presentations, our webcasts, chapter meetings, and from other members. In addition, the speaking and other opportunities I've been given through my involvement with the NASPP have really enabled me to grow professionally and to make a lot of great friends. The NASPP Conference always feels like a really awesome reunion.
