Committees choosing outside directors detailed

CEO Score has provided details about the membership of committees that choose outside directors at Korean companies.

On Wednesday, the corporate tracker said 24 of 147 firms with outside director recommendation committees have company owners as committee members. CEO Score also found that over 40 percent of committee members have backgrounds favorable to the companies.

Korea’s outside director recommendation committees are mandatory for companies with more than 2 trillion won ($1.79 billion) in assets. The requirement was established after the 1998 Asian Financial Crisis.

The 24 firms with company owners as committee members include Hyundai Motor, Korean Air, Kakao and Celltrion Healthcare.
