Governance Hot 100 – Bigger and Better than Ever for 2021!

Posted 04/02/2021 by Rory Strong

Earlier this week, we released our 2021 Governance Hot 100 award winners. With governance professionals being called upon more than ever before during the pandemic, it was inspiring to read the quality and volume of all the nominations. The commitment, support and care so many have shown to their colleagues and companies during such an unprecedented moment in recent history was a genuine morale boost (and personally much needed!).

I’d personally like to thank everyone who took the time to nominated someone and congratulations to all of those who were nominated.

Making it into the HOT 100 is validation of an individual’s commitment to enhance the impact and reputation of the governance profession. We have created 10 categories that represent the core technical and personal skills ensuring we received the best and brightest forward-thinking members of the industry. Extending the nomination period led to added numbers and difficult decisions for our up-and-coming judge’s panel. Updated for 2021 with key governance professionals, many who were governance Hot 100 winners in 2020, our panel were dedicated, focused and non-partisan. We thank them for their hard work, our success would not be possible without them.




We also owe a very special thanks to our sponsors, Computershare who have been with us since the beginning of the DMJ HOT 100. They have been instrumental in the process and fully dedicated to its success. These awards would not be nearly as successful without their valued input and hard work.

Computershare is a global market leader in share registration, corporate governance and company secretarial services, proxy solicitation and employee equity plans. Computershare provides a range of technology enabled governance solutions to their global clients and are at the forefront of innovation across the global governance landscape.

We are proud of the interest shown in Governance Hot 100 awards and the trust given to us by the governance professional community. We are touched by your support and relish the opportunity the awards provides to help DMJ Recruitment better connect with prominent governance professionals and company secretaries.

Our annual feature will be back for 2022 and we’re excited to do it all again! If you would like to express your interest or learn more, don’t hesitate to contact us at
