A recent Deloitte article co-authored by Gunster’s Bob Lamm discusses how the digital transformation is impacting companies’ boards. The digital transformation is not just about adopting new technologies. Its significance, especially in the business world, extends to how technology can be used to create—and sustain—a competitive advantage. As such, digital transformation, along with the potential for disruption, is high on the agenda for executives at many financial institutions, as well as their boards of directors.
The article discusses the ways in which digital is affecting what boards do, the communication and information exchange among board members, how emerging technologies could further impact boards, as well as some key considerations for digital enablement.
Lamm chairs Gunster’s securities and corporate governance practice. His previous experience includes assistant general counsel and assistant secretary of Pfizer as well as senior legal positions at W. R. Grace, CA Technologies, and Financial Guaranty Insurance Company. He also has extensive experience with small and mid-cap companies, as well as nonprofit entities. Lamm frequently speaks and writes on securities law, corporate governance and related topics, including the “Bob’s Upticks” column on Gunster’s Securities Edge blog, and he serves on the board of editors of The Corporate Counselor.
