Titan International reports that its board recently became a Full Board Member of the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), a non-profit membership organisation for corporate board members,
NACD Full Board Member companies range from Fortune 50 corporations to small- and mid-cap companies, as well as private entities and non-profit organisations. Through their membership, these boards join a diverse director community and have the opportunity to gain proprietary insights about current and emerging governance issues and to participate in NACD’s director education programmes.
“By joining NACD, Titan is poised to enhance the skills of its directors and to prepare the boardroom for future challenges,” said Ken Daly, president and chief executive officer of NACD. “NACD is privileged to serve as Titan’s source for leading governance practices.”
Acting as the “voice of the director,” NACD speaks on behalf of its members with regulators, institutional investors and influential stakeholders, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission and the US Chamber of Commerce, among others, on matters of crucial importance to directors.
The tyre maker shares that in joining this collective director voice, Titan’s board of directors “shows a commitment to the highest standards in boardroom leadership, as well as to increasing investor confidence in their professionalism.”
“We are honoured to join the distinguished and diverse group of directors who comprise NACD’s membership,” stated Titan chairman, Maurice Taylor. “The resources, insights, and connections NACD offers will be critical assets for our company.”
