Paul DeNicola, Director of The Conference Board Governance Center and Directors’ Institute, has been named to the Directorship 100, a list of the most influential individuals in corporate governance.
Published by Directorship magazine on October 14, the list recognizes the people and institutions that are shaping agendas in boardrooms across America.
“In his work with The Conference Board, Paul DeNicola has consistently shown his knowledge, dedication, and resourcefulness in guiding today’s business leaders,” says Jeffrey M. Cunningham, chairman, CEO, and editorial director of Directorship. “His placement within the Directorship 100 reflects his sizable contributions to informed thinking on corporate governance.” The selection process involved a distinguished board of advisers, reader surveys, and the editors of Directorship.
“Paul has a deep passion and expertise in Corporate Governance, and we’re fortunate to have him leading our work in this area,” says Jon Spector, CEO of The Conference Board. “Given the current business environment, governance issues are becoming even more important to CEOs and Directors, and I expect Paul to continue to be at the forefront of the research and debate in this area.”
DeNicola heads The Conference Board Governance Center, which focuses on a wide variety of topical issues in governance. The Center recently released recommendations on executive compensation practices that were the result of a Task Force it convened on the subject. The recommendations provide principles that help companies restore trust in pay practices and board oversight.
Also, DeNicola recently co-chaired The Conference Board Research Working Group on Corporate Governance and Sustainability. In addition to his position at The Conference Board, DeNicola is an assistant professor of philosophy at the European Graduate School and adjunct professor at the City University of New York and Nassau Community College.
