PwC Names New Partner to Center for Board Governance
July 12, 2012
By Michael Foster, Big4.com Blogger
Mary Ann Cloyd has been named as the newest partner to PwC’s Center for Board Governance, after her successor, John Barry, retired from the role.
PwC’s Center for Board Governance (CBG) offers a variety of services to help companies manage new regulations and policies on corporate governance, as well as tackling several issues that corporations may face. PwC’s CBG focuses on advisory services relating to bribery and corruption, financial regulation, proxy voting issues, GAAP convergence, planning for handovers to new executives, and growth strategies for firms.
Cloyd has worked for over 35 years in the accounting and corporate advisory industry, having previously served two terms on PwC’s US Board of Partners and Principals as well as serving on PwC’s Global Board of Partners and Principals. Cloyd has said she is excited to contribute in her new role.
“PwC’s Center for Board Governance has an unmatched breadth and depth of expertise in governance that we apply for the benefit of companies and their shareholders, the capital markets and as part of PwC’s commitment to quality,” Cloyd said in a statement.
Cloyd has also said that the CBG will continue to focus on working with advisory boards and audit committees as they “find themselves increasingly in the spotlight.” PwC believes that corporate governance will remain an increasingly pressing issue for executives at firms of all sizes, and the CBG is hoping to capitalize on that by offering their advisory services to a range of clients.
