CEOs, Boards & Leadership

For more than 30 years Fortune Magazine, in its Most Admired Corporations study, reported “Quality of Management” as the critical factor in a company's valuation, customer and community standing, product acceptance and overall reputation. This falls directly on the CEO.

Now, with the global rise in shareholder activism, boards of directors are also subject --- both as a group and individual --- to mounting public scrutiny.

With broad experience in CEO succession, establishment of public posture and credibility of many leading chief executives, Torrenzano counts its work with CEOs among its strongest.

Similarly, with its intimate corporate governance knowledge gained through its long tenure with the world's major stock markets and an array of clients, the firm possesses expertise in critical board matters including: executive compensation, shareholder rights, proxy and other issues --- many hot-button issues at shareholder meetings.

From contentious financial institution proxy fights to the annual meetings of Fortune 100 corporations, Torrenzano executives, working in collaboration with clients, play critical roles in addressing high-stakes issues.

“The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help them or concluded that you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.”
