Phoenix, Arizona, May 1, 2012
The Board Institute (TBI) today announced a new partnership with The Governance Solutions Group (GSG) to align independent and comprehensive evaluation tools with hands-on, targeted boardroom consulting to achieve excellence in corporate governance. TBI is the premier provider of independent, web-based, 360° evaluation tools for public and private organizations to help directors improve, evaluate, educate and benchmark their boards, committees and directors. TBI board assessment tools will provide an important foundation for GSG as it leverages its governance expertise to help boards recognize what they do well and how they can improve. Other TBI affiliates include The Society of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals, the Foundation for Financial Executives International, Directors’ Network and the founder of 360° Feedback.
“We are delighted to partner with The Governance Solutions Group to enable both companies to more effectively serve boards of directors,” said Susan Shultz, CEO of TBI. “As the former Corporate Secretary and Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer of The E.W. Scripps Company, Denise Kuprionis, President of GSG, has a unique combination of legal, governance and leadership skills and brings tremendous value to the boards of directors that GSG serves. We know that TBI’s objective governance evaluation tools drive measurable results. Now, boards can benefit even more by taking advantage of this powerful combination of services offered by GSG and TBI.”
“It is exciting to begin working with TBI, the leading, independent evaluation solution that includes the expertise of best of breed partners,” said Denise Kuprionis. “Working together, I am confident we can help even the best of boards to improve, validate effectiveness to constituencies, and strengthen companies. It is easy to agree that good governance is important, but boards that are sincerely interested in improving performance now have an opportunity to measure and enhance that performance.”
