The Ira M. Millstein Center for Global Markets and Corporate Ownership at Columbia Law School is now accepting nominations for the annual Rising Star of Corporate Governance Awards. I’ve nominate several but only one made the cut. Competition is getting tougher every year as interest in corporate governance increases.
This award recognizes people who, while young and possibly new to the field of corporate governance, are making their marks as outstanding analysts, experts, activists, or managers. Recipients may represent any of the many bodies that comprise the world of corporate governance: corporations, academic bodies, institutional investors, auditors, advisory firms, rating agencies, proxy services, professional associations, and others.
A selection committee comprised of previous award recipients will assess candidates on criteria including: past accomplishments and thought leadership; future projects and endeavors; reputation among existing industry leaders; and potential to influence the industry in the future. The selection committee reserves authority in considering and applying the judging criteria.
Nominees must be younger than 40 years old as of June 12, 2014. Candidates can be based anywhere worldwide, but must possess a record of outstanding performance in corporate governance that marks them from their peers. Awardees will be announced at the 2014 Millstein Governance Forum at Columbia Law School on June 12, 2014.
The nomination deadline is March 31, 2014. This year, all nominations must be submitted through the Center’s online Rising Star Award nomination form.
