McGladrey Expands Strategic Partnership with National Association of Corporate Directors

Goal is to share corporate governance best practices with board members


CHICAGO, IL– McGladrey LLP, the nation's fifth largest provider of assurance, tax and consulting services, recently announced an expansion of its partnership with the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD).

Building on the success of previous joint efforts, the expanded partnership will allow McGladrey and NACD to engage further with board members of public companies and forward-thinking private companies through NACD's events, publications and online platforms. A new program for this year includes a research study that will examine the perspectives and challenges inherent in the collaboration between boards and executive management across key business issues, including risk management, executive compensation and the current regulatory environment.

"NACD is absolutely the right partner for us as we continue to audit issuer clients and advise board members on their increasingly complex corporate governance responsibilities," said Phyllis Deiso, national SEC practice leader for McGladrey. "For boards to perform their collective responsibilities – and as respective members of audit, nomination or compensation committees – it is critical for them to stay current on regulatory, strategy, risk and other important emerging governance matters. NACD's preeminent stature as a corporate governance leader enhances our ability to connect directly with directors and support their growing need for information and guidance."
