  • General Counsel
  • C-level Executive
  • Lead Director
  • Corporate Secretary

  • General Officer in the Military

Many of our faculty members have held several of these titles during their long and distinguished careers.

In addition to board leadership, our faculty members have extensive expertise in areas that are critical to board performance:

  • Long-term value creation and strategic planning
  • Financial management
  • Cybersecurity and cyber risk
  • Social media and digital strategy
