The roles and responsibilities of an Evergreen company board differ significantly from that of a publicly traded or exit-oriented company board. The dynamics between board, management, owners and family are more nuanced, with board influence varying significantly depending on the governance structure of the particular company. Chip Dickinson, CEO of sixth-generation E. Ritter & Company, has extensive experience with boards of directors and boards of advisers and shared his wisdom at last year’s Tugboat Institute Summit.
