Principal Bonnie Schindler summarizes the groundbreaking results of the second-annual CAP-MLR Media survey of private- and family-company board compensation.

Principal Bonnie Schindler breaks down the responses from the latest Private Company Board Compensation and Governance Survey into trends regarding annual retainers, long-term incentives, governance and the impact of COVID-19.
