Private Company

A major driver of governance systems is the regulatory, legal and ownership environment in which a private company operates.
Through our extensive experience, we understand the challenges and the opportunities your environment presents, particularly with recent court decisions and increasing legal obligations.

At Effective Governance we assist you to create a sustainable organisation that ensures shareholder cohesion through value adding governance activities.

Value of Governance

  • Provide an opportunity for the Board to reflect upon how it adds value to the company, some companies contribute up to 18% higher average returns to investors through the implementation of effective governance over the portfolios of poorly-governed companies after underlying risk is accounted.
  • Compliance with the ASX Principles, ensures the company is prepared for IPO or acquisition.
  • The review of the CEO/MD can be a challenging process and discussion, reflecting upon expectations is a healthy and robust process that will improve the relationship of the board and the CEO/Managing Director.


‘Lexon Insurance recently engaged the assistance of Effective Governance to enhance the KPIs for the Chief Executive Officer’s role in order to provide a clear means to measure the CEO’s strategic achievements on an annual basis. We have successfully resolved these performance measures and are appreciative of the role that Effective Governance undertook to achieve the outcomes.’
