Why Officers Should Sign Contracts In Their Corporate Capacity

Why is this important? Because if the company defaults on the underlying transaction, the officer may be held personally responsible for any loss if the other party can demonstrate that it reasonably believed that the officer was doing business on the officers' behalf.
