Corporate Governance and Chairmanship A Personal View

This chapter focuses on the chairman's representational role. It is the job of the chairman to provide leadership and to represent the company properly to the outside world. The board members share the responsibility for the public image of the company and for electing the chairman to represent them and their company. The degree to which this responsibility for the company's external relations is discharged by the chairman personally varies between chairmen and between companies. The responsibility for ensuring that the company is properly represented, however, rests firmly with chairmen, irrespective of the size of the company and of the way in which they delegate their duties in this regard.
