IMO A.
The first split would be: established to our established for. The second one is idiomatic. Ruled out b, c and d options.
In E, talking and establishing, although parallels, distort the meaning. Talking is equal to "that takes", idem to establishing. "Who" works better referring to a person. Better than "that".
Hope It helps.

I will also go with A.
Others are just wrong.
It should be for employees not "to employee".
we are left with A and E.
This already happened so past tense must be used.
Hence A

(A) who took the company public and established a long and generous policy of stock options for - parallelism is in place. CORRECT

(B) who, taking the company public, established a long and generous policy of stock options to - causal relationship between taking and established distorts the meaning. As if he established the policy by taking the company public

(C) who, when he took the company public, established a long and generous policy of stock options to - 'who, when he took the company public' is distorts the meaning

(D) who had taken the company public, establishing a long and generous policy of stock options as - causal relationship distorts the meaning

(E) taking the company public and establishing a long and generous policy of stock options for - There is no verb in this sentence.
