When Should Boards Form A Special Committee?

Episode Summary

There is no doubt that Kimberly Alexy is a veteran of public company boards. Since 2005, she has served on eight boards and currently sits on four (CalAmp, FireEye, Five9 and VIZIO). This show, we tapped into her extensive board experience to ask the question, “When should boards consider forming a special committee – and what role should a special committee play?”

In addition, host TK Kerstetter quizzes Alexy about how she evaluates whether a board has prudent leadership. Kerstetter also examines why Alexy believes board and committee chairs play such important roles in molding effective boards.
