      It's Time For Sustainable Shareholder Activism

      My interest in shareholder activism dates back to the start of the 2010s, the world was just recovering from the financial crisis – a crisis largely stemming from a failure of corporate governance.

      The majority of the company's non-executive directors do not own a single share of the company's common stock.
