Duff & Phelps and NACD Presents: Corporate Governance for the Next Generation

calendar2 June 8, 2017

Chicago, IL

3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

On June 8, Duff & Phelps and the Chicago chapter of National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) will host a panel discussion on the basic principles of corporate governance. Private equity firms often offer valuable experience to their advancing professionals by appointing them to the Boards of Directors of their portfolio companies. In many cases, these less experienced Directors may not have the governance training as they begin this critical role for the company. Our panel of experts will educate first-time Directors to help them make decisions that maximize shareholder value and mitigate risks.

Our panel of experts will address and discuss:

  • The fundamentals of corporate governance

  • The Board’s key duties and responsibilities to all stakeholders and shareholders

  • Legal obligations of the Board

  • The Board’s role in strategy and risk

Panelists include:

  • Jai Shekhawat, Founder and former CEO of Fieldglass

  • Dennis Chookaszian, former CNA Insurance Company chairman and chief executive officer from 1992 until 1999 and as chairman of the executive committee from 1999 to 2001

  • Doug Grissom, Managing Director of Madison Deadborn Partners

  • Chris Abbinante, Co-Leader of Private Equity of Sidley Austin, LLP
