The Golden Gavel Award


Fairford sponsors The Golden Gravel Award, that aims to highlight and increase awareness of the important role of the Chair of the Board, for efficient, effective and business oriented bord work. 

The Golden Gavel for outstanding performance in the role of chair of a company board is awarded in two categories each year, one for stock exchange listed companies and one for non-listed companies. 

The award was founded in 2005 by Deloitte and the Swedish Academy of Directors (Styrelseakademien). The award is presented in association with Fairford, Cederquist, SEB and Novare. Media partner is Dagens Industri.
