Highlights

We need more women on corporate board.

David Gray
Managing Partner, PwC Russia

Top of the list of concerns of directors is around the quality and the availability of quality candidates to be on boards. You can have the best corporate governance code in the world, but it's about the people who are actually in the companies implementing them.

David Gray
Managing Partner, PwC Russia

A good board acts like a good string quartet or a philharmonic orchestra. They have complementary skills about the industry, about the company, about accounting, auditing, law, finance, all of which are part and parcel of a director’s mission.

Ronald Freeman
Independent Director, Member of the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors, Severstal
