Boardroom or Directors Club? Looking at board composition with Jessica Wallace.

Today on the Take on Board podcast, Helga is speaking to Jessica Wallace about board composition. They’ll be discussing the key findings of the recent report "Many are called, few are chosen", a study on changes to the composition of ASX 300 boards - focusing on the non-executive pool - from 2006 to today.


Jessica is a corporate governance analyst, first in the UK and then joining Ownership Matters in Australia in 2013 where she engages with and prepares research on ASX 300 listed companies.


A Ownership Matters they believe that ownership does matter and that shareholders, as the owners of the company, should hold boards and management teams accountable for their performance. They highlight governance risks to clients and advocate for change, both through their research and recommendations and through an ongoing dialogue with boards and management.
