Strong oversight and governance is key for companies to ensure that they are operating as intended.

From regulatory changes to increased enterprise and reputational risk, the challenges facing corporate directors have never been greater. With a unique understanding of the varying and increasing responsibilities assumed by the board and the committees of the board, BDO’s dedicated professionals provide thoughtful subject matter for directors to consider as they navigate through ever-changing business challenges.

Backed by broad resources across our assurance, tax and advisory practices, our professionals can help address corporate governance risks and opportunities arising throughout the business lifecycle. We work closely with board members – whether new or established directors - to provide continual education and thought leadership, facilitate improvements to corporate governance execution, and create an expanding network and community for board members to exchange best practices. We recognize and distinguish our approach for the different challenges encountered by boards operating in the large-, mid- and small-cap arenas, as well as among public, private and non-profit entities.
