RSM’s Hussain Hasan Recognized as NACD Directorship Certified

CHICAGO – (January 8, 2020) – RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services to the middle market – announced today that the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) recently recognized Hussain Hasan, national leader, technology risk consulting, former RSM board member and current board member for Ascend (Pan-Asian leadership organization) – as NACD Directorship Certified™. NACD Certified Directors who earn NACD Directorship Certification signal to boards, investors and other stakeholders that they possess the highest commitment to continuing director education available in the United States.

The NACD Directorship Certification program, the only program of its kind in the United States, provides a tangible assessment of a director’s understanding of the essential knowledge required to lead in today’s boardrooms. Certification also facilitates continuous learning, and allows directors to showcase their governance knowledge to the companies they serve and to other stakeholders in the broader governance community.

“We are excited that Hussain was able to contribute to the certification process by participating in the beta exam, and that he is now one of the first NACD Directorship Certified™ directors,” said Brian Becker, national consulting leader with RSM US LLP.

“NACD Certified Directors demonstrate their keen awareness that directorship is a profession that, like all professions, requires continuous learning,” said Peter R. Gleason, NACD’s CEO. “Hussain is leading the way in achieving and maintaining the highest credential available to directors in the United States.”

“I am honored to join the distinguished and diverse group of individuals who make up the NACD Directorship Certification community and who are committed to advancing the highest standards of boardroom excellence,” said Hasan. “The information I’ve learned and verified via NACD’s certification program are key assets to the middle market companies I serve, as well as to my professional growth as a director.”
