Written in a practical and succinct style, Putting Investors First is indispensable for board members and the corporate executives who work with them and of compelling interest to large and small investors who have lost faith in our system of corporate governance.

Demands on the boards of directors of public companies throughout the nation are more acute than ever, and scrutiny is at new highs. There is a critical need for new insights and fresh approaches as corporate America addresses a real crisis in governance.

Authors Newquist and Russell show clearly that the solutions need to come from within boards, by adherence to key cornerstones of good governance like duty of care, duty of loyalty, and a proactive intent to protect shareholders. Stressing a principles-based approach, the book outlines concrete procedures that enable accountability, transparency, performance measurement, and strong checks and balances. This insightful, highly readable book is a call to action and provides a plan to meet a modern board’s challenges.
