Former Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Arthur Levitt will chair a Governance Leadership Council formed by risk management service provider RiskMetrics.

Levitt, who is also a member of the RiskMetrics board of directors, has assembled what he called an "all-star team of corporate governance experts." The council's mandate is to identify the factors and dynamics that represent good corporate governance today and explore what those factors might look like in the future.

Other members of the council include Mark Anson, president of Nuveen Investments; Peggy Foran, executive VP of Sara Lee; Charles Elson, director of the University of Delaware's John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance; John F. Olson, a partner at Gibson Dunn & Crutcher; former SEC commissioner Harvey Goldschmid; David Hirschmann, president of the Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce; Dana Mead, chairman of MIT Corp.; James Robinson III, former chairman and CEO of American Express; Reuben Mark, chairman of Colgate-Palmolive; Peter Clapman, former corporate governance head at TIAA-CREF; and Stephen Kaufman, a senior lecturer at Harvard Business School.
