Boyd Gaming Corporation (BYD) has named Christine Spadafor as Chair of the Governance and Nominating Committee of its Board of Directors.
Spadafor has served on the Boyd Board of Directors since 2009.
The committee is charged with establishing governance policies and procedures, assessing board effectiveness, and identifying qualified prospects when board vacancies arise.
At Boyd, more than 25 percent of its board is comprised of women. That compares to less the 20 percent average for U.S. publicly traded companies.
Spadafor is a principal of the management/consulting firm SpadaforClay Group. A former chief executive officer of St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, she is a graduate of Harvard Law School and the Harvard School of Public Health.
