Governance

I help companies build strong boards

  • Board capability is often underutilized.
  • In era of activism and global governance, shareholders demand greater board accountability.
  • Without oversight that is perceived as effective, company and director reputations are at risk.
  • Proxy access provides a mechanism for activist investors to wrest control of the company.

Solution: A twelve-month governance retainer program to improve board effectiveness, perception of board oversight and an outside-in monitoring of governance issues as well as crises prevention.

Result: Directors are engaged, become strategic assets to the company, providing insight as well as perceived effectiveness in oversight.
Improved organizational strength with strong succession planning for both management and the board.
Improved company performance and reputation.
Crises avoided or handled adroitly when they occur.
