Corporate Governance

Business owners protect their assets with Windsor’s Corporate Governance expertise.

A privately-held business is generally the shareholder’s largest financial asset within his or her personal net worth.  Most business owners expect that the business will eventually serve as a means of wealth creation and retirement income. Windsor serves as a corporate sounding board to owners and also sits as a director on several boards of directors and advisory boards. In this role our focus is on protecting the enterprise value of the business so that it remains a valuable asset to the business owner.  Shareholders of a business should consider establishing a board for these services if contemplating or confronting the following considerations:

  • How does the business compare to industry benchmarks?
  • Could the board or ownership group benefit from an impartial advisor?
  • Do you know how you will exit from the business one day?
  • Could a new owner replicate the same business without you?
  • Is there a succession plan in place for key managers & supervisors?
  • How will the value of the business change should it emphasize different business lines?
