"It's with immense pride that we congratulate Kristina for this truly distinguished honor.

We are privileged to have her as a driving force within our organization."
“I am honored and grateful to the NACD for this recognition. In my work with boards, I see the increasingly complex scope of issues they navigate, and the ability to distinguish noise from true signal is critical in this dynamic risk environment,” said Kristina Wyatt, Persefoni Deputy General Counsel & Chief Sustainability Officer. “Boards serve as corporate stewards in both the short- and long-term, and as such, they need to see around corners, tackle challenging questions, take an integrative approach to learning, and distill material risks and opportunities. As it has for decades, the NACD continues to play a crucial role in the success and health of business.”
The 2023 NACD Directorship 100™ recognizes leading corporate directors and governance advocates in several categories, including attorneys, audit and risk professionals, board advisors, compensation experts, governance advisors, investors, media, policy advisors, recruiters, and regulators/rule makers.
“Exemplifying board leadership is a top priority for our organization, and this year’s peer- nominated Directorship 100 honorees demonstrate their excellence in governance,” says NACD president and CEO Peter Gleason. “The accomplishments and integrity of this year’s director honorees are inspiring, and we look forward to celebrating these individuals at our annual gala in New York.”
An independent selection committee reviews the nominees’ history of advancing board performance and leading corporate governance practices in accordance with established NACD principles. The principles form a framework that encourages corporate governance excellence in areas that include risk oversight, corporate strategy, compensation, and Transparency.
Honorees will be recognized at the upcoming 2023 Directorship 100 Awards Gala in New York City on December 13, in addition to being featured in NACD Directorship magazine’s annual list of The Most Influential People in Boardrooms and Corporate Governance.
