The FT’s Ruth Sullivan has been named Corporate Governance Journalist of the Year in the 2011 Corporate Governance and Responsible Investment Journalism Awards.
The awards are run by PIRC, which provides research and advisory services to institutional investors on corporate governance and corporate social responsibility in the UK, and law firm Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP.
Alan MacDougall, PIRC’s managing director, said: “Recent events demonstrate only too well both the vital role that journalists play in highlighting corporate misconduct, and the importance to shareholders of high standards of corporate governance and social responsibility at investee companies. We are delighted to be supporting the work of those journalists who are bringing these important issues to public attention.”
