Boardroom Resources LLC is a consulting, education, and media company that works with boards of directors to improve their effectiveness and efforts to grow their corporations, enhance bottom line performance, and build positive shareholder relations.
Boardroom Resources was founded by TK Kerstetter, who most recently served as Chairman of NYSE Governance Services for the New York Stock Exchange and spent almost 15 years serving as Chief Executive Officer of Board Member Inc., the holding company for the Corporate Board Member and Bank Director brands.
Boardroom Resources produces the industry’s premier board informational webshow titled “Inside America’s Boardrooms” which tackles board and governance challenges, trends, and best practices. In addition, Boardroom Resources offers board services ranging from board evaluations to facilitating board retreats. Public or aspiring public companies get the benefit of a resource that has the kind of experience that exudes trust in the boardroom because they have been there before at all levels from serving on a public company board, president of a public company, or years of educating directors to be more effective.
TK Kerstetter is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Boardroom Resources LLC and host of “Inside America’s Boardrooms” which is filmed at the NASDAQ Marketsite. “Inside America’s Boardrooms” is the premier informational webshow for boards of directors of public companies.
Few corporate governance experts have had a more extensive or diverse exposure to board members and boardroom trends than Kerstetter who has been called the “Board Whisperer” and “a second generation pioneer of board education”. Over his 20+ years in the board education arena, he led a team that created a multitude of board related conferences and educational opportunities serving board members, general counsels, corporate secretaries, and senior officers.
Prior to launching Boardroom Resources in 2015, Kerstetter served as Chairman of NYSE Governance Services and President of NYSE Board Member after the New York Stock Exchange acquired Board Member Inc. where he served as Chief Executive Officer and built the nationally recognized brands Corporate Board Member and Bank Director. During his tenure with Corporate Board Member and the NYSE, he was the creator, producer, and co-host of “This Week in the Boardroom,” a weekly on-demand web show filmed at the New York Stock Exchange. He also authored “The Board Blog” for corporate directors.
In 2011, Kerstetter spear-headed the launch of the Board Leadership Program, in conjunction with NYSE Euronext, which provides corporate secretaries, general counsel, and board leadership with critical updates and high-caliber content offered through a variety of live and online events.
Prior to focusing on the board space, Kerstetter served as President and director of the $3 billion publicly-held Wilmington Savings Fund Society spanning a 20-year banking career. Directly following the financial services career he founded the Bank Directors Training Center in Wilmington, Delaware. In 1994, he authored a guidebook titled, Ten Commandments for Bank Directors: the “Official” Guide Regulators Won’t Publish, which was released as a monograph by the National Association of Corporate Directors.
A graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) and Harvard Business School Advanced Management Program, he was the recipient of the University’s Outstanding Alumni Award and was inducted into IUP’s Sports Hall of Fame.
