He has also co-authored several comment letters to the SEC and ISS on behalf of CAP, as well as the annual NACD Director Compensation Report, and has also been a speaker at a number of compensation and regulatory-focused events sponsored by Equilar, the Knowledge Congress, the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), and the National Association of Stock Plan Professionals (NASPP).
