Mr. Hillard agrees under the Agreement to not disclose or use for his own benefit or the benefit of any other person or entity at any time, either during or after his association with the Company, any “confidential information” of which he becomes aware. He further covenants and agrees that he will not, directly or indirectly, through the date three years following the cessation of the Term for any reason whatsoever, (a) attempt to cause or otherwise encourage any employee of the Company (or any affiliate) to leave the employ of the Company (or such affiliate) or (b) engage in, own, manage, or operate as an officer, director, shareholder, proprietor, employee, consultant or otherwise with, any person or entity which is directly or indirectly engaged in any portion of the “financial industry” within the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
