Establishing Professional Company Secretarial Position
An essential element in the establishment and maintenance of a competent corporate governance regime is a professionally qualified and experienced Company Secretary. Such a person is a vital key player in the organization's governance equation. The Company Secretary is, in effect, the Chief Governance Officer of the organization.
Whilst appreciating and mindful of the commercial reality of any business, Company Secretaries owe their primary duty and loyalty to the Board of Directors generally and the Chairman in particular. Accordingly, it is becoming more difficult for the Company Secretary to maintain the integrity of the organization's corporate governance and remain a part of executive management.
Astute boards are increasingly recognizing this tension and choosing to outsource the Company Secretarial role to a professional independent of executive management.
Peter Wetzig is experienced in both Independent Director and Company Secretarial/Governance Executive roles and can mentor the Company Secretary and directors to significantly enhance your board's and organization's governance processes. Call or email us to discuss your needs.
