Dr Bang Dang Nguyen, Cambridge Judge Business School: How social connectivity can hamper a board a directors

The Cadbury Archive at Cambridge Judge Business School has been completed with the addition of copies of all the speeches on corporate governance made by Sir Adrian Cadbury, Chairman of the UK Committee on the Financial Aspects of Corporate Governance. The Archive, established in 2010 and part of the Cambridge Corporate Governance Network (CCGN), is a major source for researchers into corporate governance.

Research by Dr Bang Dang Nguyen, University Lecturer in Finance at Cambridge Judge Business School, reveals that boardroom social connectivity – the relationship between a CEO and independent directors – could prevent the effective working of the board.
