Do you know anything more about them? What is their history?
Governing Body Helpers
Bunch of company men, ‘yes’ men. Also, ass clowns.
They're just Elders who have worked their way up the company ladder to leadership positions. If they are partakers, they're eligible to join the GB. If they're not partakers, they will be in charge after the GB 'disappears'.
It was back in 1992 that they announced the appointment of these helpers. They were to assist the GB and be from the “other sheep “ They were likened to the non Israelites who did menial work to help the priests at the Temple.
I don’t know exactly what they do perhaps research articles? Or make low grade decisions on matters……..
We have seen some of them doing monthly broadcasts and one or two have made their way into the GB when a new member was required, so it is an excellent launching pad. (They seem to suddenly get the “upward call” when in that position)

“Keep Holding Men of That Sort Dear”
SINCE 1992, the Governing Body has appointed experienced, mature Christian elders to help its committees carry out their work.* These helpers, from among the “other sheep,” provide valuable support to the Governing Body. (John 10:16) They attend the weekly meeting of the committee to which they are assigned, providing background information and offering suggestions. The Governing Body members make the final decisions, but the helpers implement the committee’s direction and carry out whatever assignments they are given. The helpers accompany Governing Body members to special and international conventions. They may also be assigned to visit branch offices as headquarters representatives.
One of the helpers who has served since the arrangement was instituted says: “When I take care of my assigned tasks, the Governing Body can concentrate more fully on spiritual matters.” Looking back over his two decades of serving as a helper, another brother observes: “It has been a privilege beyond anything I could ever have anticipated.”
The Governing Body entrusts much to its helpers and appreciates the fine service performed by these loyal, hardworking brothers. May we all “keep holding men of that sort dear.”—Phil. 2:29.
See the box “How the Governing Body Cares for Kingdom Interests” in chapter 12 of the book God’s Kingdom Rules! for a summary of the responsibilities that are cared for by the six committees of the Governing Body.

so many white guys on that list. God loves all people but he especially loves white people
St George - A list of brown nosers.
St George Of England...that's quite a list...31 GB Helpers...mind you not a one generates any revenue for this cult! They and their wives are provided apartments, meals, health care and a small monetary allowance...all these are fixed overhead costs not offset by any income or revenue that they create or bring in for the cult. I would imagine the Legal Department may have as many if not more personnel to maintain and provide for. This cult has a shitload of 'employee' related expenses with no revenue to cancel-out this debt. Where does the money come from to offset their large list of liabilities? I guess like many have stated...Kingdom Hall sell-offs!
Sorry...a little off topic!
'They're just Elders who have worked their way up the company ladder to leadership positions. If they are partakers, they're eligible to join the GB. If they're not partakers, they will be in charge after the GB 'disappears'.''
''Disappears''. In other words off to the Caymen Islands or arrested...when the vast majority of the rank and file wake up and the GB realize the 'gig' is up.
