Just What Is the Corporate Director's Job? Highlights of Perspectives on the Board Member's Job Description
December 2019 | Research Report
We examine the expectations that various stakeholders have of the corporate director in a series of reports based on roundtables with different groups: proxy advisors, directors, passive and active investors, corporate secretaries, hedge funds, academics, Delaware bench and bar, media, and regulators. We ask each group to consider how the role of the director has evolved, what the current range of expectations is, and where gaps in understanding have resulted in conflict. Our goals are to provide direction to corporate directors and foster a common understanding among market participants of how to view the job of the corporate director.
