The 100 Most Influential Players in Corporate Governance

Directorship magazine has recently published The Directorship 100, a list of the 100 most influential players in corporate governance.  The list and the reasons for the inclusion of each member appear in the September issue of the magazine.

One of those included on the list is Lucian Bebchuk, Director of our Program on Corporate Governance.  In describing the reason for selecting him, the magazine notes his work on executive pay, including his book Pay without Performance; his advocacy for “Say on Pay”; and his initiation of bylaw amendments adopted by several large public companies.

The magazine’s goal is to recognize those who are driving corporate governance inside America’s boardrooms.  The list of influential players includes business leaders Warren Buffett and Jack Welch; “poison pill” inventor Martin Lipton; Congressman Barney Frank; and CalPERS, the giant public pension fund.  The list also includes two legal academics other than Bebchuk: Columbia Professor John Coffee and Stanford professor and former SEC commissioner Joseph Grundfest.
