Assessing Board Independence Strategic Crisis Consulting

An investor in a large U.S. technology concern was engaged in a struggle over the direction of the company and was concerned about the seating of a new slate of company directors at the annual stockholder meeting.

Using a sophisticated social mapping methodology, TAG researched inappropriate linkages among proposed directors, as well as undisclosed affiliations, conflicts of interest and other markers indicating lack of independence.

Within the week, we delivered a visual linkage representation along with a written background of each director and a database of supporting documentation.
