Yes. Textron adopted its Governance Guidelines and Policies
in 1996. Textron's Board recognizes that corporate governance is not a
one-time event. Rather, it is an ongoing and dynamic process. As such,
these guidelines, and other aspects of Textron governance, are reviewed
back to top
The board historically has ranged between 11 and 14 directors. The Board believes there should not be substantial fluctuation outside of this range. Currently, 13 members serve on Textron's Board; 12 of those directors are independent.
Board of Directors is composed of 12 independent directors and one management director, Scott C. Donnelly, Chairman and CEO. Board of independence is defined in the Director Independence section of this
website and within Corporate Governance Guidelines and Policies.
Currently, there are four standing Board committees: Audit; Nominating and Corporate Governance; Organization and Compensation; and Executive. The Audit, Nominating and Corporate Governance and Organization and Compensation Committees each meet regularly and have each adopted formal charters which set forth their respective roles and responsibilities. Those charters are posted on this website on the Committee Charters page. The Executive Committee meets only when necessary and consists of Textron's Chairman, its President and Chief Executive Officer and the chairpersons of each of the other three committees.
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee has responsibility for corporate governance matters.
All of the members of the Audit, Nominating and Corporate Governance, and Organization and Compensation Committees are independent.
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee nominates the committee members and chairpersons and recommends their approval to the Board of Directors.
Yes. The independent Directors annually designate a Director from among the chairs of the Audit Committee, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and the Organization and Compensation Committee to serve as Lead Director. The Lead Director, among other functions, presides at all meetings of the Board at which the Chairman is not present and all executive sessions of the independent Directors, and serves as liaison between the CEO and independent Directors.
The non-employee directors conduct an annual performance evaluation of the Chief Executive Officer against predetermined objectives. In addition, the Chief Executive Officer annually prepares a self-evaluation prior to such annual performance evaluation by the Board.
