In today’s business climate, the expectation for success can be overwhelming, making it nearly impossible to keep tabs on all that success entails. When you’re being pulled in multiple business directions at once, you might not have time to handle corporate governance red flags. Companies that recognize corporate governance as a priority include a corporate governance consultant to provide valuable information and advice on this critical need.
A thorough corporate governance consultant will do this through a review of your company’s corporate governance framework, including taking a close look at the board of directors and governance provisions outlined in the proxy statement. The consultant will review the company’s website, and examine your company’s executive compensation and shareholder rights. You will gain information on how voting has turned out at annual shareholder meetings, particularly examining director vote results, “Say on Pay” proposals and shareholder proposals.
