2015 Millstein Governance Forum
Governance Leading the Market
As Comptroller of the City of New York, Scott Stringer has become one of the most high-profile actors in the corporate governance arena. From leadership on proxy access to his recent observation that "boards have become quick on the trigger to grant seats to activist investors just to avoid a proxy fight," a trend he called "disturbing," Mr. Stringer has made clear that long-term shareholder value is his focus. In his remarks, Mr. Stringer will share his perspective on how companies should make sense of the desires and demands from the array of shareholders and where he sees corporate governance evolving to in this dynamic environment.
Honorable Scott M. Stringer, Comptroller, City of New York
Moderator: Ira M. Millstein, Founding Chair, Millstein Center, Columbia Law School; Senior Partner, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP
Introduced by Cynthia M. Fornelli, Executive Director, Center for Audit Quality
