Modern Governance 100

Recognizing exceptional leaders in modern governance

The Modern Governance 100 program recognizes company secretaries, general counsels, and other governance professionals who are driving change at their organizations. Professionals from around the world were nominated by board members, executives, and peers and were celebrated at this year’s Modern Governance Summit on September 11th in Orlando, Florida.

"Being recognized as one of the first Modern Governance 100 is quite an honour. Playing an active role in shaping the way governance practices are developed and applied within a business puts the General Counsel and Company Secretary in a truly unique role to help implement the governance agenda and act as trusted advisors to the boards we support. Having our accomplishments celebrated in this way is wonderful." -Victoria Garvin, Aviva, United Kingdom
