Mr. Bertsch, who will start March 15, is a New York-based partner at CamberView Partners, an investor-led corporate governance adviser to public companies. His previous experience includes president and CEO of the Society of Corporate Secretaries & Governance Professionals, and corporate governance positions with Morgan Stanley (MS) Investment Management, TIAA-CREF and Moody's Investors Service.
