BOSTON, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The American College of Corporate Directors has conferred Professional Director Certifications on five retired General Officers, including 1 Four Star, 2 Lieutenant, 1 Major and 1 Brigadier. The Professional Director Certification is the original, oldest and best known of the public company director credentials.
The Professional Director Certification demonstrates to shareholders and regulators alike that the holder has completed a rigorous and extended program of public company director education. When the credential is included in the holders public proxy bio, there is no question that they are qualified public company directors, not only well trained, but prepared to take on the responsibility of public company directorship.
The five retired Generals are among the 1600 public company directors who are members of the Corporate Directors Group, (www.corporatedirectorsgroup.com), the Boston based director organization that includes the American College of Corporate Directors, the educational and credentialing division.
Among the five Generals holding this Professional Director credential is Four Star General William W Crouch, former Vice Chief of Staff of the United States Army. There are currently eight General officers in the Corporate Directors Group membership.
The Corporate Directors Group also includes a former Vice President of the United States, two former Governors, two former Senators, two Congressmen and two former Cabinet officers. These representatives of government join an impressive list of former and current CEO's and other notable public company directors making up the membership.
The Professional Director Certification program is offered exclusively through the American College of Corporate Directors. Directors who are interested in a Professional Director Certification must first join the Corporate Directors Group (www.corporatedirectorsgroup.com) whose membership is free of charge.
