How Lead Directors Can Impact Board Effectiveness

Episode Summary

Peter Browning served on the boards of Wachovia, Lowe’s, and Nucor for over 10 years, spending a good portion of that time as either lead director or non-executive chair. It would be hard to find a director with more years of service on multiple boards. Host TK Kerstetter asks Browning how he formulates his board leadership game plan when he accepts the job to lead a board.

This show also examines: How reasonable are shareholder requests for additional executive pay disclosures from the compensation committee? And, are proxies getting just too big and complex for investors to absorb?
