MENLO PARK, Calif., Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Jim DeLoach, a managing
director with the global consulting firm Protiviti (, was
named to the National Association of Corporate Directors' (NACD) Directorship
100 list in the Governance Professionals and Institutions category. This
annual list recognizes people who significantly influence leading practices in
corporate board performance and oversight, including directors, corporate
governance experts, journalists, regulators, academics and counselors.


"Through his countless thought leadership contributions, his authorship of
Protiviti's Board Perspectives: Risk Oversight series, and his involvement in
such projects as the COSO board risk oversight survey, Jim has great influence
on the boardroom community, our clients and our firm," said Joseph Tarantino,
president and chief executive officer of Protiviti. "Jim's insights, advice
and expertise have truly helped to shape the greater boardroom agenda. We are
pleased the NACD chose to recognize him as a standard of the highest
principles of corporate governance and as a top influencer in the boardroom."

integrate risk management with strategy-setting and performance management. A
prolific writer, DeLoach heads the firm's thought leadership strategy and has

the firm's founding in 2002, including its Early Mover series, Flash Reports,
The Bulletin, and the Board Perspective: Risk Oversight series. He has also
written two books and published more than 50 external articles in the past 15
years. His book, Enterprise-wide Risk Management: Strategies for linking risk
and opportunity, published by Financial Times in June 2000, was the first book
written on the subject of enterprise risk management. DeLoach is a member of
Protiviti's Executive Council and is based in the firm's Houston office.

"The NACD Directorship 100 honorees represent the most influential leaders who
set the right tone in the boardroom, enabling sustainable growth and
innovation around the globe," said Ken Daly, president and CEO of  NACD.
"These stewards of exemplary board leadership serve as role models for others,
and it is important for NACD to recognize their contributions in the boardroom
and to corporate governance."

NACD Directorship 100 honorees are selected by a group that includes the
previous year's honorees, an advisory panel of judges, and NACD Directorship
readers and staff. This year's honorees will be recognized during a gala
