Kathryn V. Roedel, a Board member since October 2017, has been recognized by the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) in its Directorship 100™ which honors the most influential peer-nominated leaders in the boardroom and corporate governance community.

“Kathy is a distinguished business executive and a valuable member of our Board who deserves this honor and recognition from the NACD,” said Richard H. Fleming, chairman of the board, Columbus McKinnon.

“As chair of our Corporate Governance and Nominations Committee, she has advanced our strong governance practices and contributed mightily to our board succession planning and refreshment.

“Her invaluable business expertise, leadership, wise judgment, and strategic insights have added greatly to the depth of our Board of Directors. We are honored to have her as a member of our Board and delighted that she has received this special recognition.”

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.
