Challenges of Being the Lead Director

Inside America's Boardrooms
It shouldn't matter whether you are a non-executive chairperson or lead director-some of the challenges of board leadership are still the same. Host Kerstetter asks veteran bank director David Porteous, Lead Director of Huntington Bancshares, his opinion on shareholder engagement and how future face-to-face investor/board meetings might require new skills for board committee chairs.

The show also digs deep into board evaluations and how effective boards can mitigate any pressure on term, age, or tenure limits. The show closes with an interesting discussion about the pros and cons of the universal ballot concept floated out by SEC Chairman Mary Jo White.
