We maintain corporate governance policies which incorporate best practices in order to benefit the interests of all stakeholders. We believe that a corporation’s culture is set by the “Tone at the Top,” and the starting point for our corporate governance program is our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics for our Board of Directors. We have similar codes in place for our Senior Financial Officers and our employees in general. Each of these codes reflects our view that the key elements of an effective corporate governance program are accountability, transparency, fairness, and responsibility.
Our Board composition reflects our commitment to diversity. We have two female directors and one director from an under-represented community.
The Chairman of our Board is independent, and we have a majority of independent directors (7 out of 9) who meet regularly in executive sessions. Independent directors chair the Board’s Audit, Compensation, and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committees.
