Board of Directors
As a private, family company, SC Johnson isn’t required to have a Board of Directors guiding its operations. But ask anyone at any company, large or small, and they’ll tell you that occasionally, counsel from experts outside the management structure can provide helpful insight and support.
Sam Johnson, fourth-generation leader of SC Johnson, explained it like this: “To be successful as the head of an enterprise, you don’t necessarily have to be the brightest in all aspects of the operation, but you have to be certain you get the best available advice.”
We call it “wise counsel.” Here’s a look at SC Johnson’s current Board of Directors.
