      'Social loafers' impede board reform, ex-chairman says

      The Sarbanes-Oxley governance reforms did little to prevent failures of major U.S. financial institutions because they didn’t scale down oversized boards stuffed with “social loafers,” former U.S. mutual fund executive Robert Pozen says. Mr. Pozen told a Toronto audience Tuesday that the sweeping changes legislated in 2002 were inadequate to prevent scandals or failures at companies such as Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, Lehman Brothers, Wachovia, . The changes required independent directors on bo

    7. The art of chairing a board

      A former prime minister, not Canadian and whose name I’ll withhold, whispered into my ear before the board meeting of a bank: “Watch the way I chair this meeting, Richard.” Seeing a meeting chaired almost perfectly is a rarity, so I paid attention—and was not disappointed. Contrast this to another bank board meeting, where the CEO pounded the table, berating a mostly silent chair in front of directors. Both chairs are non-executive, supposedly independent, and yet these meetings played out very
