Governance Overview Codes & Policies Board of Directors Board Committees

A message from Chairman, James O’Connor:

Armstrong has long embraced the values embodied in our Operating Principles integrity, respect for people and diverse backgrounds, courtesy, customer service and shareholder focus. Consistent with these principles, we take corporate governance seriously.

Armstrong has been a leader in corporate governance for many years. Our board has been comprised of outside directors since at least 1990. We were leaders in establishing governance principles, a board evaluation process and fully-independent audit, compensation and governance committees. In recent years, Armstrong strengthened its corporate governance with more detailed Corporate Governance Principles, expanded committee charters and provided multiple means for shareholders to contact the board. We also proudly promote our global Anti-Corruption Policy, with our employees, partners and agents around the world.

Our governance strengths include:

  • Our board of directors consists of all outside directors with the exception of the CEO.
  • Our board holds regular executive sessions without management present, and we have regular access to employees.
  • Our audit, compensation and governance committees all have charters to guide their activities.
  • We comply with (and in some cases exceed) the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and NYSE guidelines.

I invite you to review our Corporate Governance Codes & Policies as well as our committee charters and other materials below. We welcome your thoughts and concerns.
