Corporate Board Membership
Worldwide, research continues to show that increased diversity among the members on the corporate board related to their background, ethnicity, nationality, gender, age, industry sector, etc. is associated with stronger corporate performance and enhances their fiduciary duty obligation to the company and its shareholders.
The days that company boards usually recruited nearly exclusively from the ranks of current or retired CEOs and CFOs are pretty much a thing of the past.
More recently, several jurisdictions in South-East Asia have introduced regulations mandating to nominate also more independent directors and to clearly limit their terms of service.
One of the key value propositions of Agri-Business and Consultancy is not only to provide independent directors but also specifically trained, actual “domain specialists” for various boards in the Agronomy-, Ingredient-, Feed-, AgTech-, Biotech-, Startup-, Food- and Livestock Sector to the local and international business community.
