“Cathy Trower’s leadership has enabled our board to gain a significant competitive distinction and advantage. She relates her material directly to higher board performance and accountability with alacrity, and her counsel has had more impact on my thinking about ‘good to great’ governance than any other.”

Jennifer Sampson

Chief Executive Officer and President, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas
