The EY Center for Board Matters (http://ey.com/boardmatters ) understands that effective corporate governance is a critical component of building a better working world. Dan Clifford leads EY’s Board Referral Program for The EY Center for Board Matters. This program makes connections between board candidates and opportunities for corporate director roles. Using EY’s boardroom knowledge and relationships within the governance space, he is able to introduce candidates to potential opportunities. These connections are only built with companies EY does not audit.
