Directors Roster: In affiliation with Spencer Stuart -- a quarterly record of new director appointments. (Spencer Stuart/Directors & Boards Directors Roster).

ALLOTTING THEIR TIME to accommodate a new directorship is never easy, but it's manageable, say three executives interviewed by DIRECTORS & BOARDS for this edition's Directors Roster. They describe a balancing act of fine tuning their time management skills and being very particular about what directorship opportunities they take on. That involves knowing what's happening with a company before joining its board, having some sense of what's expected in terms of travel, and carefully selecting prospective board offers where contributing won't become burdensome.

Joining the board of Cigna Corp. is Fred Hassan, chairman and CEO of Pharmacia Corp. He is also a director of Avon Corp. He is joining the Cigna board for the same reason he joined the Avon board in 1999 -- because it is undergoing a turnaround, something which he has successfully accomplished at Pharmacia since he joined the company in 1997. "If a company is going through a stage where its CEO is very hands-on in turning a company around, then that CEO has to focus his attention on the immediate issues," he says. Hassan states that only after he successfully "put his own house in order" that he branched out to pursue outside board opportunities.

"As an active CEO, I really have to watch my time allocations very carefully," he says. And for that reason, any board invitation must meet his own criteria before he signs on. The first step is determining whether he can learn from the board experience. "If there is no learning, then I'm not helping my own company," he says. Hence, his continuing interest in mastering the mechanics and dynamics of corporate transformation.

His second determination is how much time the new commitment will demand. "That comes down to whether the company is a leader and is doing well in its own industry," says Hassan. "If so, it's unlikely the company will put a big drain on the board' He adds, "My philosophy is that a board should be concerned with governance, not management. Therefore, you don't want a board that's overinvolved with managing the company.

Hassan also tries to limit his directorships to companies that are on the East Coast (Pharmacia's headquarters is outside New York City), and he avoids companies that might be subject to litigation that would "involve intense board involvement." And any prospective offer must pass muster with his own company's board. He says of the Cigna board invitation: "In this instance, the board felt that the ROI -- the benefit of the extra learning -- would be worth it."

Joining the board of Cell Therapeutics is Vartan Gregorian, CEO of the prestigious Carnegie Corp. of New York, a nonprofit organization that provides educational endowments. Since 1990 he has also served as a director of McGraw-Hill Inc. A self-professed workaholic, Gregorian begins each day at 5 a.m. "I've found that only busy people have time to do things' he says, "because they prioritize what they have to do."

Gregorian says he has always been reluctant to take on outside directorships. He emphatically believes that his primary allegiance and responsibility is to Carnegie: "You must do justice to what's entrusted to you:' So what is most important to him is to join a board where he can learn something, where he has an interest in the products or services that the company offers, and where the experience will be of benefit to his own organization.

Gregorian manages his commitments by sticking to a few simple self-imposed rules, which include: joining boards only when he can guarantee 100 percent board attendance; being familiar with the history of the company; knowing who the key management members are and their value systems; concentrating on assignments for each given day and never feeling bogged down with what's going to happen in the following week; and limiting his speaking engagements.

He offers yet another tip for dealing with verbose individuals: "When I was president of Brown University, people would always start to explain something, and would not quickly come to the point until later, when they would say, 'By the way....' So now I say, 'Let's start with by the way first."'

Joining the board of Nike Inc. is Jeanne Jackson, CEO of Inc., the online retail division of Wal-Mart Stores. She is also a director of McDonald's Corp. Jackson advises anyone considering a board invitation to know what travel demands that company may have, a lesson she says she learned the hard way.

It was only after joining the McDonald's board that she learned that it holds one board meeting overseas. "In that case, you're not talking about only two days for a board meeting, but more like three or four by the time you tack on the travel time." With McDonald's earning 40% of its revenue from its international operations, Jackson acknowledges that "It would almost be irresponsible for a board member to have never visited a McDonald's overseas, because you have no idea of the challenges that are faced by those managers.

Even domestic travel, says Jackson, who is based on the West Coast, can be onerous, particularly if you're crossing time zones. She also suggests finding out about dates of events other than board meetings, where director attendance may not be mandatory, but nonetheless expected. McDonald's, she notes, hosts an annual franchisee meeting -- a "huge event" held in Orlando or Las Vegas. "To be an effective board member, do you have to be at the big company meetings to see the CEO rallying the troops?" Jackson asks. The answer is obvious: "Sure. Despite the extra travel, it's a very good event for directors to attend."

RELATED ARTICLE: Irwin Katsof For board service, enterprising telecom firm IDT Corp. puts in a call to a man with special connections. (Director spotlight)

Kelly McCarthy

IT BEGAN AS an ordinary day for Rabbi Irwin Katsof. His schedule was jam-packed. He had an early morning meeting with White House staffers to promote Words Can Heal, his new anti-slander campaign. Later that afternoon he was scheduled to attend his first board meeting with IDT Ventures Inc., a subsidiary of billion-dollar telecommunications company IDT Corp. Only the day would not be ordinary. It was September 11.

As he was preparing to leave a Washington hotel, his pager went off. It was his contact from the White House. He returned the call but got no answer. Then a message alert from CNN appeared on his computer screen: "Plane Hits World Trade Center." Turning on the television, he watched in horror as the second building was hit. Within the hour the Pentagon was attacked. With the nation's capital temporarily shut down, and his first board meeting with IDT postponed, Katsof rented a car and drove home. Like most Americans, the only thing left in his power was to pray, something that he has plenty of experience in doing.

While a rabbi is not your typical corporate director, Katsof is not your typical rabbi. "I happen to be a rabbi who happens to be very connected in the business world," he says.

Connected he is. A revered religious teacher, respected businessman, and best-selling author, he is the executive director of the Jerusalem Fund of Aish Ha-Torah, an international Jewish educational outreach organization. There his responsibilities include creating new programs such as Words Can Heal, a national campaign with a mission to eradicate gossip and verbal violence ( It has attracted a who's who of Hollywood endorsers such as Goldie Hawn, Tom Cruise, and Bette Midler who serve on its board of advisers.

Katsof's connections extend to the country's leading politicians and business executives. Senators Joseph Lieberman and John McCain, along with Jack Kemp, are honorary chairpersons. Chief executives Alan Hassenfeld of Hasbro Inc., Peter Coors of Coors Brewing Co., and Henry Cisneros of American City Vista are also among the staunch supporters of his programs.

In addition, through the Jerusalem Fund, Katsof has brought many U.S. business and political leaders on trips to Israel to explore high-tech ventures and to promote good relations between America and Israel. Executives who have joined him in the past include Lennert Leader, president of AOL Investments, Andrew Neff, senior managing director of Bear Sterns, and Henry Kissinger. Former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Lady Margaret Thatcher, and Delaware Sen. Joseph Biden Jr. have also made the trip to Israel and endorsed his programs. And he has been responsible for bringing some well-known Jewish people back to their roots. Actors such as Elliot Gould, Jason Alexander, and Kirk Douglas are just a few he has inspired.

IDT was founded by current chairman Howard Jonas in 1990, who has guided it from a start-up to a billion-dollar business in the course of 10 years. In November 2001 IDT Ventures, a subsidiary which was formed to identify promising media-related investment opportunities, acquired Talk America Radio Network, a syndicate with more than 600 radio stations, and will relocate the operation from Las Vegas to facilities now being constructed at IDT's headquarters in Newark, N.J. In December, IDT acquired Winstar Communications Inc., a provider of phone and data services that entered bankruptcy proceedings, for $43 million. There are also facilities in place and plans for cable broadcasting in the future.

Katsof's IDT appointment seems like a natural fit. Katsof and Jonas have similar principles. Both believe in high ethical business standards, and are committed to socially responsible causes: Katsof through his work at the Jerusalem Fund, and Jonas with his service on 20 charitable boards. And like Katsof, Jonas is deeply committed to the Jewish faith (the cafeteria at IDT is kosher). However, Jonas is quick to point out that his religious beliefs were not the basis for his appointing a rabbi to the board. "I don't like making a public association between religion and the company," says Jonas, adding, "This is not a house of worship -- it's a business."

Though telecoms in general were hit hard this past year, IDT is thriving. The company reported revenues of $1 billion for the fiscal year ending July 31, 2001, up 12.5% from fiscal 2000. Revenue for subsidiary IDT Ventures jumped to $17 million from $2 million. According to Jonas, IDT has "no debt, has over a billion dollars in cash, and has over $3 billion in paid-up assets." He also mentions the company has ranked on both the Forbes and Fortune lists of fastest-growing companies. Says Jonas, "The accolades have been nice, but it doesn't mean anything if you don't turn a profit."

Katsof joins the IDT Ventures board with Herb Tate, professor of energy policy at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and Harvey Schiller, chairman and CEO of YankeeNets, the media company that owns the New York Yankees and New Jersey Nets. IDT Ventures is one of several subsidiaries, all of which have their own boards with outside directors. Where the units interrelate is that each of the subsidiary CEOs is a member of the parent board. A reason for structuring the subsidiaries with independent boards, says Jonas, is that "we are planning on taking those different subsidiaries public, and so far as they will be public companies we thought there should be outside directors on each of them."

While IDT Ventures is Katsof's first corporate board appointment, he is no stranger to the boardroom. With his Hollywood and Washington connections, he has created a high-profile, formidable board of advisers for Words Can Heal, where he serves as executive director. In addition, he is the founding board member of Media Watch International, an independent nonpartisan organization that promotes impartial media coverage of Israel and the Middle East. With his many contacts, Katsof feels that he can be helpful to IDT in "expanding its product base, becoming more profitable, and being more effective as a company."

Educated by the Jesuits at Loyola College in Montreal, Katsof graduated magna cum laude in 1978 with a psychology degree and a concentration in organizational management. After college he took a year off to travel the world. A visit to Israel quickly changed his life and became the basis for his renewed commitment to his religious heritage. He stayed, studying for three years at Aish HaTorah College of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem's Old City.

He returned to the U.S. in 1982 to launch the Los Angeles branch of Aish HaTorah. It would become one of the organization's most successful branches in helping to awaken Jewish people to their rich heritage. He organized "Let My People Know?' an international satellite broadcast exploring the fate of Jews in the former Soviet Union. The 1994 event attracted leading business leaders, politicians, and dignitaries, including Vice President Al Gore, Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone, and Nazi hunter Simon Weisenthal. "Going to Israel got me in touch with the fact that it was important for me to have a close relationship with God," says Katsof, who was ordained in 1992.

His appeal has not been limited to the Jewish community alone. In 1998 he co-wrote a best-selling book with CNN's Larry King called Powerful Prayers: Conversations on Faith, Hope, and the Human Spirit with Today's Most Provocative People. Singer Willie Nelson, former President Jimmy Carter, football great Steve Young, and a number of business executives were among the roster of personalities who opened up to talk about God (see sidebar excerpt). Katsof then went on to publish another bestseller, How to Get Your Prayers Answered. "When I teach," Katsof says, "I am trying to give people a sense of their own inner potential. I am trying to lift people up to a connection with God, to give people an emotional experience of the beauty of the world, the vastness of the world, and the awesomeness of the creator. I have tried to get people in touch with their soul."

Helping others to feel connected to a higher power has taken on an urgent tone. Katsof confirms that the terrorism crisis has plunged many people into a spiritual crisis, forcing them to address the issue of what life is all about. Says Katsof, "No one on their death bed ever told me that they wished they had one more hour in the office, or cut one more business deal. When it comes time for eulogies, people tell me, 'My father was a good man, he quietly helped people who were poor.' Those are the things people want to be remembered by."

On prayer, with Larry King and Norman Augustine

Larry King writes: On the day I spoke with Norman Augustine, then the vice chairman and CEO of Lockheed Martin Corp., the Justice Department announced that it had problems with a proposed merger of this aerospace-industry giant with another giant, Northrop, and would oppose the deal on its potential of becoming a monopoly worth $35 billion. Augustine's company employs more than 177,000 people and builds everything from a replacement for the space shuttle to state-of-the-art aircraft to satellites to missiles.

Augustine told me that prayer is part of his life, but he had no words for God about the Justice Department:

"I didn't get up and say a prayer for it this morning. I knew it was going to happen and that it was a fait accompli. I try not to bother the Lord with things that will probably work their way out one way or another.

"I tend to say my prayers for things that are pretty overwhelming or life threatening. I suspect the Lord is very busy. But if it were a business issue that was threatening the company, like a hostile takeover, I probably would pray. And I have prayed during the waiting for a contract to be awarded. When they are really important to the company and not for personal gain, that's when I'll pray....

"I remember April 12, 1981, during the launch of Columbia, the first space shuttle. My company makes a major portion of the shuttle and so many people put so much of their lives into it. You watch friends of yours climb aboard - friends with families. You know that very little mistakes can have disastrous consequences, so during the end of the countdown I turn to prayer.

"Then, of course, when Challenger blew up I was praying that it wasn't us that caused it. That was a horrible day. Initially it looked like it was a part we built that caused the problem, but it turned out it wasn't. We build the large orange fuel tank for the shuttle and it worked just fine, but in the first few hours that wasn't what we were thinking. That was a bad day for the whole country.

"I have a prayer I learned in high school that I often say: 'Let us not be frightened by the problems that confront us but, rather, give thee thanks that thou has given us the opportunity to show our worth. And let us be part of the answers, not problems, of the people of our time.'

"There was a fraternity at my high school in Denver - that's the fraternity prayer. I thought it was poignant. I've said it a zillion times. I said it that day. I think the most important thing is to say what's on your mind. Be candid, because you can't fool the Lord."

The Directors Roster

The Directors Roster is a detailed record of executives added to corporate boards. The Roster covers a three-month period prior to the publication of each edition of DIRECTORS & BOARDS. It includes companies of all sizes, from billion-dollar blue chips to smaller growth ventures, that have elected new outside directors. The tracking of director appointments and follow-up research is a joint undertaking by Spencer Stuart, a leading firm in executive and director search, and DIRECTORS & BOARDS.

The Roster is organized alphabetically by the company adding the new director(s). A company index leads off the Roster, for ease of scanning the universe of companies included in this listing. At the back of the Roster is a director index which lists all the new directors alphabetically along with the name of the company whose board they joined. The Director Index appears on pages 81-82.

Details included in each Roster entry are the address of the company adding the new director, the address of the director at his or her primary affiliation (when available and for public disclosure), a biographical note on each director, and a description of the businesses of both the company adding the new director and of the director's company. (Schools, universities, hospitals, etc., are not described.) For public companies, to give a sense of the size and scope of the enterprise, we also include revenues (or, in some cases, assets for banks and certain financial institutions.)

We welcome your announcements of new directors, and your inquiries on any matters related to the Directors Roster and director data. The direct number is (215) 405-6082.
