The 1792 Exchange, a conservative group that works to keep public companies neutral on Environmental, Social and Governance issues, announced Wednesday that former Attorney General Daniel J. Cameron has been named its chief executive officer.

The Dayton, Ohio-based 1792 Exchange notes that while he was Kentucky’s AG, Cameron led a multi-state investigation into Bank of America, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo for ESG-related investment practices.

The organization has a mission to educate Congress on the “dangers of ESG (environmental, social, and governance) policies” and “steer public companies in the United States back to neutral on ideological issues” according to its website.

“I’m honored to serve as the CEO of the 1792 Exchange, where I will continue meaningful work to put an end to the anti-American ESG agenda that threatens to take over our corporations and change the fabric of our country,” Cameron said. “We will shine a bright light on those whose ideological agendas seek to dismantle American freedom and prosperity. We will stop investment management firms, elected officials, and corporate interests from using other people’s money to advance their radical political agendas.”

“Our goal has always been to help corporations move back toward neutral on ideological issues so they can better serve their shareholders and customers,” said 1792 Exchange founder Nathan Estruth. “I simply cannot imagine a more capable and qualified chief executive to help us safeguard free exercise, free speech and free enterprise.”

Cameron will join 1792 President Paul Fitzpatrick in leading the non-profit educational organization.

“We are just getting started,” Fitzpatrick said.
