CBE provides innovative governance tools for boards and organizations.

As a trusted, third-party, professional services provider, CBE works closely with public and private company boards, CEOs, and not for profits.

Founded in 2010, The Center for Board Excellence streamlines laborious, inefficient, costly, document-based processes so that directors and governance professionals can focus on what they do best: provide strategic advisement and guidance on matters that critically impact a company’s performance.

Guided by seasoned board veterans and governance experts, our evaluation process captures and establishes important metrics that transform board governance from ad hoc, one-time initiatives into a strategic process for continuous improvement.

Our clients include many members of the Fortune 500 and Forbes’ 100 Most Trustworthy Companies, who know the value of CBE's unique performance assessment reporting.
