NEW YORK, June 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Bloomberg Media and EY announced today the launch of the Bloomberg Board Directors' Forum, exclusively sponsored by the EY Center for Board Matters. This week, the new global Bloomberg Board Directors' Forum hub will debut on the Bloomberg Business web site (www.bloomberg.com/board-directors-forum), featuring contributions from Bloomberg editors and journalists around the world on the topics of boards, directors, audit committees, and corporate governance. EY Center for Board Matters' professionals will share perspectives on how boards and audit committees can take action and learn from the news headlines impacting boards today via custom content featured on the hub.
"Corporate boards face a myriad of challenges, including pressure from short and long-term investors, cyber risks, and regulatory concerns, that if not properly overseen may impact their organization's reputation," said Mark Manoff, EY Americas Vice Chair and leader of the EY Center for Board Matters. "The new Bloomberg Board Directors' Forum hub will deliver timely content to enhance board directors', audit committee members', and investors' knowledge of critical and ever-evolving governance issues."
The EY Center for Board Matters was launched in early 2014 to inform and bring together boards, audit committees, institutional investors and others interested in governance topics through the collection and analysis of governance data from more than 3,000 public companies listed in the US through its proprietary database. In addition, its leaders regularly speak with investors and board members to bridge the information "give and take" that exists between preparers and users of corporate financial information.
As part of Bloomberg's commitment to delivering news and insights on trending issues to board audiences for the world's top companies, Bloomberg Television will also produce a five-day global TV program, "Bloomberg Board Directors' Forum Week," sponsored by EY Center for Board Matters, to be aired in October.
"Working with Bloomberg, EY will receive unparalleled access to the global corporate boardrooms and offices where their ideal media consumers reside," said Jacki Kelley, Chief Operating Officer, Bloomberg Media. "Board members will find the content very useful in their role as leaders and visionaries, as it will provide insights from thought leaders and best practices on the topics most relevant to boards today."
