Nominees revealed for the Corporate Governance Awards 2016

Oct 12, 2016
<p>The Corporate Governance Awards 2016 will take place on&nbsp;Thursday, November 3 at&nbsp;Cipriani 25 Broadway in New York.</p>

With the Corporate Governance Awards just over three weeks away, we are happy to announce this year’s short list of nominees. The list includes well-known brands such as Bank of America, the Hershey Company, Marriott International and Salesforce.com.

The ninth year of these highly coveted awards will celebrate the best efforts of individuals, teams and companies in the world of governance, risk and compliance. This year we received nearly 300 nominations for the 14 award categories. These were then reviewed by our editorial staff and narrowed down to a list of finalists. Currently, a panel of judges is going through all of the supporting materials and will decide on the winners.

Tables are selling fast, but we still have some remaining. Bring your colleagues, clients and guests for a night of glamour and networking. We’d love to have you join the festivities at Cipriani in New York City on November 3 – seats and tables can be booked online here.
