Donna Anderson, vice president and corporate governance analyst, T Rowe Price
T Rowe Price places a strong emphasis on shareholder rights and board composition, says Donna Anderson. Although she meets with public companies year-round, she explains that calls in spring tend to be ‘more transactional’, while ‘we’re much freer in the off-season to have a more expansive dialogue.’

– She generally meets with between 350 and 400 companies a year.
– A CFA who got her start in governance when she chaired the proxy committee for Invesco Funds, Anderson has now been at T Rowe Price for nine years.
