Sign In to Download
In the last decade, boards of directors of U.S. public corporations have responded to new regulatory requirements and market pressures by strengthening their independence and expanding the scope of their fiduciary duties to oversee management. The analysis of director compensation and board structures in U.S.-based public companies in The 2009 Directors’ Compensation and Board Practices Report is based on proxy data through May 2009 from 2,436 companies and the results of a 2009 survey of corporate secretaries by The Conference Board. This annual report is a complement to the annual Top Executive Compensation Report, which is also produced by The Conference Board.
