Our Representation on the Most-Influential-Corporate-Governance-Players List

Directorship magazine issued its second annual Directorship 100 list – a list of the 100 “most influential people on corporate governance.” The list includes such well-known figures as Chairman Barney Frank, Chairman Ben Bernanke, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, SEC Chair Christopher Cox, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, activist investor Carl Ichan, and Blackstone CEO Steve Schwarzman. The blog is pleased to announce the significant representation that members of the Harvard Program on Corporate Governance have on the Directorship 100 list:

Lucian Bebchuk, the program’s director, was selected in the “professors” category. Bebchuk was also included in the Directorship 100 list last year, when the magazine first issued this list.

• Vice-Chancellor Leo Strine, Jr., a senior fellow of the program, was selected in the “regulators and rule makers” category.

• Finally, the Directorship magazine, in recognition of the success and influence of the Harvard Law School Corporate Governance blog, included in its list the two current co-editors of the blog, Jim Naughton and myself, in “the media” category. Others listed in this category are Alan Murray and Joann Lublin of the Wall Street Journal, Andrew Ross Sorkin of the New York Times, Fox news CEO Roger Ailes, Maria Bartiromo of CNBC, and Jim Cramer of TheStreet dot com. This selection would not have been possible, of course, but for the many contributors posting their insights and work on the blog and for the loyalty of our readers, and we would like to express our thanks to them all.

The Directorship article, which includes the full Directorship 100 list, as well as a description of the methodology used and substantial effort invested in putting together the list, is available here.
