CGOs make corporate governance a top priority
Abstract: Despite reforms over the past decade, fraud, accounting irregularities, conflicts of interest and other corporate malfeasance continue to make headlines. To ensure that corporate governance matters get the attention they deserve, many companies are appointing chief governance officers (CGOs). This article discusses the roles and responsibilities of a CGO and how to go about picking the right person. A sidebar notes that good governance can enhance the value of a company’s stock.
