A Call to Action: Leading Executives issue “Commonsense Principles of Corporate Governance”

Citing the importance of publicly owned companies to the U.S. economy, a group of thirteen leading executives issued a set of principles, on July 21, 2016, outlining their vision for the critical elements of good corporate governance.  The report, entitled, Commonsense Principles of Corporate Governance, was signed by a diverse group of executives ranging from Jamie Dimon, JP Morgan Chase; Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway, Inc.; and Mary Barra, General Motors Company to Bill McNabb, Vanguard and Larry Fink, Blackrock.  According to the group’s press release, the “principles set forth a number of commonsense recommendations and guidelines about the roles and responsibilities of boards, companies and shareholders” that are “conducive to good corporate governance, healthy public companies and the continued strength of our public markets.” More detail on these principles is included in our summary:  https://www.dorsey.com/newsresources/publications/client-alerts/2016/07/principles-of-corporate-governance
