About the Speaker

Beverly Behan

President of Board Advisor, LLC

Beverly Behan has worked with over 130 Boards of Directors over the past eighteen years, ranging from recent IPOs to the Fortune 500 – from New York and Toronto to Bogota, Kuala Lumpur and Tel Aviv. She specializes in board effectiveness and CEO succession planning – and increasingly finds herself working with CEOs and senior executives to help THEM be more effective in the boardroom.

Her last book “Great Companies Deserve Great Boards: A CEO’s Guide to the Boardroom” (Palgrave Macmillan, 2011) was named Governance Book of the Year in the United States by Directors & Boards magazine. She has been quoted as an expert in corporate governance by The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, CBS Marketwatch, The Times of London and many other publications. She also served as a regular columnist for Bloomberg BusinessWeek on board related issues (“The Boardroom”) from 2007-2011.

A lawyer with an MBA, Beverly began her work with boards in 1996 after joining the executive compensation group of Mercer Consulting in Canada. In 2000, she was transferred to New York as a partner with Mercer Delta and thereafter focused exclusively on board effectiveness issues. While at Mercer Delta, she co-authored “Building Better Boards: A Blueprint for Effective Governance” (Jossey-Bass, 2005). Beverly then led the Board Effectiveness Practice of the Hay Group, from 2006-9 which enabled her to gain greater international board experience, including work with boards in the middle east, central America and Asia. In 2009, Beverly left the Hay Group to start work on her last book. She continues to take on consulting assignments through her own firm, Board Advisor, LLC, based in New York.
