Board Composition and Director Recruiting Trends 2020
Board Composition and Director Recruiting Trends, an Equilar publication, analyzes the composition of boards across the Equilar 500—the 500 largest, by reported revenue, U.S.-headquartered companies trading on one of the major U.S. stock exchanges (NYSE, Nasdaq or NYSE American). The report identifies trends related to diversity, board size, organizational structure and more. The report also highlights the youngest Equilar 500 boards, as well as those with the highest percentage of female directors. Georgeson and KPMG’s Board Leadership Center provided additional independent commentary to provide insight on the landscape of board composition and how trends may affect the requirements and makeup of boards.
