Last week, at the 2011 annual meeting held in Paris of the International Corporate Governance Network (ICGN), Professor Lucian Bebchuk received an ICGN award for excellence in corporate governance. ICGN awards are given annually in recognition of “exceptional achievements in the corporate governance field.”

According to the remarks delivered at the ceremony by the chair of the ICGN awards committee Richard Bennett, Bebchuk received the award “for the volume and quality of his research, particularly around executive compensation and the relationship of governance to value and firm performance. Over two decades this research has provided a base of integrity and learning for scholars, policy makers, and legislators.” Quoting a letter from Robert Monks, Bennett added that Bebchuk “is the epitome of honest, painstaking, unprejudiced analysis; he is in truth an academic icon” and that “[a]ll of us are in his debt.”

The ICGN is a global membership organization of over 500 leaders in corporate governance based in 50 countries. Information about the ICGN awards, and about the past recipients of such awards, is available here.

  1. That is a good sign from ICGN to conduct this type of activities for the promotion of Corporate Governance.
