June 16, 2022 /CSRwire/ - The National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) announced the 2022 NACD Directorship 100™—the most influential peer-nominated leaders in the boardroom and corporate governance community. Included among this year’s esteemed honorees is Eileen Kamerick, Audit Chair and Board Member of the LMP Closed End Fund Board of Directors.
Ms. Jane E. Trust, CFA, Chairman and President of the LMP Closed End Fund Board, notes, “Ms. Kamerick joined the board in 2013 and quickly established herself as a highly engaged, effective and insightful director. Ms. Kamerick was named Chair of the Audit Committee in May 2014. She brings her broad experience in financial services, law and accounting to the oversight of the investment companies and works tirelessly to ensure that the interests of stockholders are well represented.”
The LMP Closed End Fund Board oversees 20 investment companies advised by various independent specialist investment managers of Franklin Resources, Inc., including Western Asset Management Company, LLC, ClearBridge Investments, LLC, Brandywine Global Investment Management, LLC and Clarion Partners, LLC.
Now in its 16th year, the NACD Directorship 100 awards recognize peer-nominated leading directors and governance professionals. Honorees are evaluated in four key categories: integrity, mature confidence, informed judgment, and high-performance standards. A selection committee reviewed the nominees’ histories of advancing board performance and leading corporate governance practices in accordance with established NACD principles. The principles are a framework that encourages excellence in areas that include risk oversight, corporate strategy, compensation, and transparency.
“The NACD Directorship 100 continues to honor those who have demonstrated exemplary board leadership and innovation in corporate governance,” said Peter R. Gleason, NACD president and CEO. “We honor these individuals’ forward-thinking minds and their ability to lead their board and organizations to current and future success.”
