MENLO PARK, Calif., August 24, 2020: Joseph Tarantino, president and CEO of global consulting firm Protiviti, has been named for the fourth consecutive year to the NACD (National Association of Corporate Directors) Directorship 100TM list. The NACD list recognizes leading corporate directors, corporate governance experts, policymakers and influencers who significantly impact boardroom practices and performance.

He has more than 40 years of experience working with a variety of organizations to enhance their business performance through risk management, operational effectiveness and enhanced governance.
