While Sarbanes-Oxley may be a driver for much of today's compliance initiatives, sound corporate governance extends beyond finance. Whether you are seeking to augment your Board, develop governance policies and procedures, sell your privately held company to a publicly traded company, or implement new governance structures, Cerius Interim Executives can help. Cerius Interim Executives currently serve on Boards of public and private companies, and understand the special requirements of Finance and Audit Committees, Compensation Committees, and the accountability required to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley.
Beyond providing potential Board members, Cerius Interim Executives understand corporate governance from both the external, regulatory perspective, and the internal perspective. The relations between the CEO, President, and other C-level officers and the Board can be complex, and often ambiguous. Cerius Interim Executives work with you to define and then develop a strong relationship between the Board and internal management to ensure full alignment on strategy, commitment to major executive initiatives, and complete understanding of expectations and accountability.
Externally, Cerius Interim Executives work with you to develop effective relations with regulatory agencies, customer and market watchdog groups, and your own customer advisory groups. In the event of potential (or actual) legal action, Cerius Interim Executives collaborate with you and your counsel to explore alternatives and define and deliver legal strategies.
