Corporate Governance, A View from the Top

Last Spring Raj Gupta, Richard Jaffe and I sat down with Joe DiStefano, a leading reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer.  Richard chairs the advisory board of our governance center of which I am executive director.  Raj, as you will see, is an important member of our center and was Chairman of Rohm and Haas leading it to a spectacular merger with Dow Chemical (spectacular for Rohm and Haas shareholders at least).   The article describes some of Raj's philosophies on governance, philosophies learned through important work on the boards of companies like Rohm and Haas, Tyco, Vanguard, Dephi and Hewlett Packard.  It is well worth reading.

The entire article can be downloaded here.

All the best,
