“Millstein rising star of corporate governance”

I’ve been recognized as a “Millstein rising star of corporate governance” by the Millstein¬†Center for Corporate Governance and Performance at the Yale School of Management. The announcement I received is below.

It’s really gratifying to be recognized for the hard work that’s gone into ProxyDemocracy. Credit should also go to Roop Roy, who helped immensely with website development, Mark Latham, a board member and intellectual patron saint of the project, Mark Orlowski, a board member wise beyond his years in the ways of running a small nonprofit, and Nicco Mele, board member and net evangelist. Also to Dan Giffin, Andy Felton, Becky Warren, and John Zedlewski, who helped out early on. And of course our funders, particularly Janet Shenk of the Panta Rhea Foundation, who took a chance in supporting the project and showed admirable patience. And Emily Coit who put up with a lot of late-night coding and general Sturm und Drang. And my parents. I could go on with this list, believe me. ¬†

The award recognizes young professionals new to corporate governance, from the many bodies that comprise the global world of corporate governance, who are making an impact as outstanding analysts, experts, activists, or managers. Candidates were assessed on criteria such as past accomplishments and thought leadership; future projects and endeavors; reputation among existing industry leaders; and potential to influence the industry in the future. All honorees were nominated by a member of the governance community for their sterling work. 

The Millstein Center for Corporate Governance and Performance, in collaboration with its partners in the selection process, the Open Compliance and Ethics Group and The International Corporate Governance Network, recognizes you for your outstanding work and congratulates you on this honor.
