A ‘Rising Star’ in corporate governance
ALUMNI | Craig Ferrere, BE11, has been named a Rising Star in Corporate Governance for 2013 by the Ira M. Millstein Center for Global Markets and Corporate Ownership at Columbia Law School.
Ferrere, a finance graduate who is the Edgar S. Woolard Jr. Fellow in Corporate Governance at UD’s John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance, attended a reception in June with six other Rising Star honorees as part of the eighth annual Millstein Governance Forum. The award recognizes global corporate governance professionals younger than 40 who are making their mark as outstanding analysts, experts, directors, managers or advocates.
“This is a new era of corporate governance, and this year’s honorees are the future leaders who will help define it,” Ira M. Millstein, co-chair of the center’s advisory board, said at the forum.
Ferrere, whose research interests are in corporations and corporate law, says he will continue to work at the Weinberg Center on several more projects this year before he heads to law school. His research, conducted with center director Charles Elson, the Edgar S. Woolard Jr. Chair in Corporate Governance, focuses on agency theory and executive compensation.
