Matthew Scott, editor of Corporate Secretary, congratulated the winners: ‘Our 2012 awards ceremony was postponed until January 2013 due to Hurricane Sandy, so it is wonderful to finally give these outstanding individuals and companies the recognition they deserve. Our award winner’s hard work has provided shining examples of corporate governance, compliance and ethics management, which can help companies eliminate fraud and become more efficient and profitable while complying with tougher regulations.’
