The Board Institute Partners with Canadian Corporate Board Advisory Services
February 27, 2020 (PHOENIX, USA and TORONTO, CANADA)
The Board Institute (TBI) today announces a partnership with Canadian Corporate Board Advisory Services (CCBAS) to leverage TBI’s state-of-the-art board of director evaluation solutions with CCBAS corporate governance services for the Canadian market.
“As both a proven corporate governance professional and a previous public company board member, Jo-Anne Archibald, CEO of CCBAS, brings tremendous value to the Canadian governance community. We’re pleased to add her firm to our select partner roster and to extend our solution to Canada,” said Susan Shultz, CEO of The Board Institute. “Jo-Anne’s experience and expertise, coupled with our suite of solutions for enhanced corporate governance, will provide boards with an unmatched ability to comply with evaluation mandates, gain insight into best practices, assure proper risk management and improve overall performance.
“Only 32 percent of public company directors have a high level of knowledge and understanding of their board’s emerging risks. In an environment of constant, disruptive change, it is imperative that directors assist their companies with accountability and the prudent risk-taking that is essential to successful strategic execution,” Shultz added. “To address new regulatory pressures, investor demands, innovative competitors and the array of internal and external potential disruptors,” says Shultz, “boards must have confidence that they are performing at their best.”
“Canadian boards increasingly recognize the importance of shareholder and stakeholder accountability,” said Jo-Anne Archibald, CEO of CCBAS, “and we believe they will embrace our strategic combination of independent, board centric performance evaluation and governance advisory services. We’re excited to leverage our expertise with a professional, cost-effective educational and benchmarking solution. Through this partnership, we see a tremendous advantage to our clients, because we can better assess boardroom behavior, dissect motivators and analyze change,” Archibald said. “In turn, we can facilitate better communication, clearer decision-making, improve corporate results and reduce risk.”
