ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act on corporate boards and chief executive officers (CEOS) in the U.S. The legislation increased the workload and the potential liability for board directors. The author says SOX has made the director's job more complex. He adds that it is important to consider the interpersonal chemistry of the board members and the ability of a candidate to contribute to the team.
