“Episode #1 Boardrooms’ Best,” Jack Devine in discussion with Nancy May, January 1, 2018

“Boardrooms’ Best” featured TAG President Jack Devine as their guest on the very first episode of the podcast hosted by Nancy May, CEO of The BoardBench Companies, LLC. Drawing upon his experience serving on a number of boards as well as his work in the private business intelligence industry, Jack discussed the importance of companies and their boards doing their due diligence ahead of a deal – whether it’s due diligence on a potential business partner, an acquisition target, an industry, or a country. According to Jack, companies and their boards need on-the-ground information to mitigate potential risks. Jack argues that ultimately, tough questions need to be asked to protect the company, and it’s best when boards develop a culture that accepts this as part of doing business.
