Relatively little is known about board Chairs. Unlike their counterparts on the executive side, CEOs – board leaders attract less research interest, and most of it focuses on the advantages and disadvantages of combining the CEO and Chair positions.

In designing this survey, we wanted to shed light on this little but key actor in the boardroom.
