Business Policy and Strategy, Public and Nonprofit Issues, Research

corporate boards of directors on firm performance. The paper is
among the first scholarly investigations of the antecedents and
consequences of board power. In addition to his scholarly work, Dr.

Management, having served previously as session chair and track
