Michael Henson

Term:

Since September 2007

Profile:

Michael Henson President & CEO Since becoming the Minnesota OrchestraÕs President and CEO in September 2007, Michael Henson has spearheaded the complex process of planning for the redevelopment of Orchestra Hall, a project for which design schematics were unveiled in April 2010. Leading the organization to balanced budgets in fiscal 2008, 2009 and 2010, he has established stringent budget controls organization-wide, at the same time strengthening the OrchestraÕs global reputation through artistic activities including European tours, significant commissions, recording initiatives, the launch of a major BBC broadcast series for the Minnesota Orchestra and an innovative Music On Demand music downloads project. Henson, who has been a CEO since age 30, earned a reputation as one of the United KingdomÕs top symphonic leaders. Over 17 seasons he headed first the Belfast-based Ulster Symphony (1992 to 1999) and the Bournemouth Symphony (1999 to 2007). He also served as chair of the Association of British Orchestras, the national body that represents the interests of all professional orchestras in the U.K. A native of West Sussex, England, Henson studied composition and analysis at the Universities of Sheffield, Leicester and Reading and received a scholarship for further study in Vienna. He has published extensively on the perception of music. He and his wife Helen have three young children and reside in Minneapolis.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

June 2012)
?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided
