Wesco Director Honored by NACD

James Singleton

PITTSBURGH — The National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) announced the 2022 NACD Directorship 100™—the most influential peer-nominated leaders in the boardroom and corporate governance community. James L. Singleton, independent Lead Director of Wesco International, Inc., has been recognized as Public Company Director of the Year, an honor given to only one recipient annually.

“As independent Lead Director, Jamie exemplifies impeccable integrity, confidence, and informed judgment, and he manages to consistently high-performance standards. He encourages robust and balanced discussion with the goal of achieving the best performance from our Board for the benefit of our stakeholders,” said John Engel, Chairman, President and CEO of Wesco. “Jamie’s extraordinary time and effort spent during Wesco’s transformational acquisition and integration of Anixter in the midst of the global pandemic was instrumental in helping us generate tremendous value for all our stakeholders,” he said.

Now in its 16th year, the NACD Directorship 100 awards recognize peer-nominated leading directors and governance professionals. Honorees are evaluated in four key categories: integrity, mature confidence, informed judgment, and high-performance standards. A selection committee reviewed the nominees’ histories of advancing board performance and leading corporate governance practices in accordance with established NACD principles. The principles are a framework that encourages excellence in areas that include risk oversight, corporate strategy, compensation, and transparency.

“The NACD Directorship 100 continues to honor those who have demonstrated exemplary board leadership and innovation in corporate governance,” said Peter R. Gleason, NACD president and CEO. “We honor these individuals’ forward-thinking minds and their ability to lead their board and organizations to current and future success.”
