WASHINGTON – April 15, 2022 – The National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) announced the 2022 NACD Directorship 100™ – the most influential peer-nominated leaders in the boardroom and corporate governance community. Included among this year’s esteemed honorees is Lauren Smith, Managing Director of Diversified Search Group
Now in its 16th year, the NACD Directorship 100 awards recognize peer-nominated leading directors and governance professionals. Honorees are evaluated in four key categories: integrity, mature confidence, informed judgment, and high-performance standards. A selection committee reviewed the nominees’ histories of advancing board performance and leading corporate governance practices in accordance with established NACD principles. The principles are a framework that encourages excellence in areas that include risk oversight, corporate strategy, compensation, and transparency.
“The NACD Directorship 100 continues to honor those who have demonstrated exemplary board leadership and innovation in corporate governance,” said Peter R. Gleason, NACD president and CEO. “We honor these individuals’ forward-thinking minds and their ability to lead their board and organizations to current and future success.”
