About Corporate Secretary

Corporate Secretary is a publication of IR Media Group, a business media company renowned for its magazines, websites, events and research.

Corporate Secretary is a digital and print platform, providing a forum where governance experts and service providers can share their experience, insights and best practice recommendations on a wide range of critical issues, from corruption, internal investigations, e-discovery and records management to succession planning, executive compensation, proxy actions and shareholder engagement.

Corporate Secretary was founded in 2002 to help corporate secretaries and other governance professionals develop a deeper understanding of their roles and become more effective in them at a time when publicly listed companies’ regulatory compliance requirements began to escalate amid a series of high-profile corporate accounting scandals.

Corporate Secretary is independently owned and today continues to serve a vital role in highlighting the achievements and expertise of a group of people who work outside the spotlight and are often isolated as the only individuals in their organizations focusing on these complex matters.
