Salzburg Global Board Member Chris Lee Named as "Director to Watch"

Senior partner at FAA Investments featured by Directors & Boards journal Chris Lee speaking at the third session of the Salzburg Global Forum on Corporate Governance

Salzburg Global Board Member Chris Lee has been included in Directors & Boards' "Directors to Watch" list.

Lee, who also sits on the advisory committee for the Salzburg Global Forum on Corporate Governance, was selected as someone exemplifying "the very best of board service" as well as someone bringing racial and ethnic diversity to their boardrooms.

Directors & Boards is a quarterly journal that covers issues surrounding leadership and corporate governance.

Lee is a senior partner at FAA Investments, a private investment group focusing on real estate and early-stage companies. He is co-founder and managing partner at Star Magnolia Capital (Hong Kong) Limited, an alternative investment firm conducting in-depth research on hedge funds and private equity managers.

In addition to his role as a board member for Salzburg Global, Lee also serves as an independent board member with Matthew Asia Funds and The Asian Masters Fund (ASX: AUF).

Lee has attended the past two sessions of the Salzburg Global Forum on Corporate Governance. In 2017, he also attended the Salzburg Global session, Global Challenges, Regional Responses: How Can We Avoid Fragmentation in the Financial System?

Speaking to Directors & Boards, Lee says, "Directors must bring both a global strategic perspective and a focus on near-term priorities. An important role for boards is to guide a company’s strategic direction in our fast-expanding global marketplace. To improve corporate governance, directors must evaluate international best practices, such as the UK Stewardship Code, on long-term strategy incorporating all stakeholders’ values, not just shareholders! Strong directors are courageous leaders who look ahead for ways to benefit both the peoples of our planet and company's profit growth."
