      The Power Of Investors When It Comes To Honing Corporate Governance

      Perhaps tangible change towards more diverse and representative global boardrooms will in the end come as a result of the demands of powerful investors. In Canada, the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan, a pension fund managing $130bn in assets also happens to have four women on its board of nine directors, including chairwoman Eileen Mercier...

      My Response To Dick Costolo: Twitter Must Lead Silicon Valley On Diversity

      Twitter has taken a lot of fire for having an all-male board, almost all-male management team, and all-male investor group. The root of this problem is arrogance and a “don’t-care” attitude.

Instead of responding to the issue that was raised, he tweeted ...

      How to Run a Board  -  Ivey Business Journal

      The role of the Board of Directors has never been more important.  Boards make important decisions that affect companies, the people who work in those companies, the people who own those companies, and sometimes the economy itself. If ever there was a place where excellence is required and should be demanded, this is it.  The effectiveness of a board should not be considered a nice addition to a well-managed company, but a prerequisite....

      2014 Compensation Strategies

      Executive compensation continues to be a key focus of legislators, regulators, activists, and the media. Boards continue to be challenged with how to balance the expectations of outside constituents with management’s expectations to be fairly compensated.

      J.C. Penney – The End is Near

      I keep waiting for an internet meme to appear with a picture of activist investor, Bill Ackman with a smirk on his face and the following title underneath:  “J.C. Penney:  Miss me yet?”  After all, since Ackman resigned from the board of directors almost 2 months ago and sold his hedge fund’s nearly 18% stake in the struggling retailer, J.C. Penney has been in a steady decline and appears headed for bankruptcy....

      The General Counsel: Crucial Legal and Business Partner

      What had been a focus primarily on ensuring a replacement for the CEO has now gained traction as a broader, deeper management development process focused on key positions. The GC, as the head of the legal department and a key resource and advisor to the board, is an increasingly crucial spot given the recent explosion of highly technical and potentially dicey regulations and possible litigation...
