Sandra Guerra has served as a board member and chairperson of boards of directors at listed companies, closed companies or organizations since 1995. With her 23 years’ experience in corporate governance, she played a part in introducing the concept and in its application in Brazil as one of the founding members of the Brazilian Institute of Corporate Governance (IBGC), where for four years she was the chairperson of the organization’s board. On two occasions, she was also a member of the board of directors of the International Corporate Governance Network (ICGN). Ever since she completed her Master’s degree in Business Administration at FEA-USP (2009), her research has been focused on the highest governance body, the board of directors, which, from the point of view of the behavioral approach, also takes center stage as the theme of her book “A Caixa Preta da Governança” published in 2017 by Best Business. Certified as a Board Director by the IBGC and as a Mediator by the CEDR-Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (UK), Sandra continues to serve as a board member – currently at Vale S.A. and GRI (Global Reporting Initiative), based in Amsterdam – and is managing partner at Better Governance, which is a corporate governance consulting firm that focuses on boards of directors.
