Corporate Governance

Committed to the highest standards of corporate governance.

Our Board of Directors oversees the management of risks inherent in the operation of the company's businesses and implementation of its strategic plan. All of our Directors stand for election each year. Our Board as a whole reflects a wide range of viewpoints, backgrounds and expertise because we believe that diversity is a core attribute of a well-functioning board.
