The (Former) chairman's name is Giacomo Schema. The board members are simply addressed by number. Hatch takes over control of the Elgen in Battle of the Ampere. Two board members are killed during Hatch's takeover.

The Elgen force consists of approximately 5,000 soldiers, referred to as guards, but has risen greatly to be approximately 16,000. In Storm of Lightning, these guards, in general wear black uniforms, and occasionally a copper helmet to avoid being rebooted by Taylor. The guards carry a plethora of weaponry, including various handguns and rifles. Near the end of Rise of The Elgen about half of the guards answer to Hatch alone, at least 2,000 in the Peruvian facility. In Taiwan there is a group of Elgen guard called the Lung Li. They are basically modern day ninjas.
