People from the most companies you listed are on the memberlist.
We used to have also the company name on the memberlist.
Its formalized in the bylaws that 15% of the organization's members can be
employed or represented by the same company.

<quote from='bylaws'>
An applicant for membership may not be admitted if, at the time of
application or consideration, fifteen percent (15%) of the Members of the
Corporation are employed by or represent the same corporation or
organization as that corporation or organization which employs the applicant
or is represented by the applicant.
