FREE EXCERPT

The Directors Roster is a detailed record of executives added to corporate boards. The Roster covers a three-month period prior to the publication of each edition of DIRECTORS & BOARDS. It includes companies of all sizes, from billion-dollar blue chips to smaller growth ventures, that have elected new outside directors. The tracking of director appointments and follow-up research is a joint undertaking by Spencer Stuart, a leading firm in executive and director search, and DIRECTORS & BOARDS.

The Roster is organized alphabetically by the company adding the new director(s). A company index leads off the Roster, for ease of scanning the universe of companies included in this listing. At the back of the Roster is a director index which lists all the new directors alphabetically along with the name of the company whose board they joined. The Director Index appears on pages 93-95.

Details included in each Roster entry are the address of the company adding the new director, the address of the director at his or her primary affiliation (when available and for public disclosure), a biographical note on each director, and a description of the businesses of both the company adding the new director and of the director's company. (Schools, universities, hospitals, etc., are not described.) For public companies, to give a sense of the size and scope of the enterprise, we also include revenues (or, in some cases, assets for banks and certain financial institutions.)

We welcome your announcements of new directors, and your inquiries on any matters related to the Directors Roster and director data. The direct number is (215)405-6082.
