Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary. . 2009.

promoter
The meaning of promoter is not defined by statute. Generally, any person who plays a major part in forming a company or establishing its business (usually the prospective owners or directors of the company). Where any trading takes place on behalf of the company, before the certificate of incorporation is issued, any person who purports to act for or as agent of a company before the company has been formed will be personally liable for any contract they make on behalf of the company (section 36C, Companies Act 1985).

promoter
n.
   a person who puts together a business, particularly a corporation, including the financing. Usually the promoter is the principal shareholder or one of the management team and has a contract with the incorporators or makes a claim for shares of stock for his/her efforts in organization. Most states limit the amount of "promotional stock" since it is supported only by effort and not by assets or cash.
