The 2023 NACD Directorship 100 recognizes leading corporate directors and governance advocates in several categories, including attorneys, audit and risk professionals, board advisors, compensation experts, governance advisors, investors, media, policy advisors, recruiters, and regulators and rule makers.

“Exemplifying board leadership is a top priority for our organization, and this year’s peer-nominated Directorship 100 honorees demonstrate their excellence in governance,” says NACD president and CEO Peter Gleason. “The accomplishments and integrity of this year’s director honorees are inspiring, and we look forward to celebrating these individuals at our annual gala in New York.”

An independent selection committee reviews the nominees’ history of advancing board performance and leading corporate governance practices in accordance with established NACD principles. The principles form a framework that encourages corporate governance excellence in areas that include risk oversight, corporate strategy, compensation, and transparency.
