Corporate Governance at Benjamin Moore

Since the company was founded in 1883, Benjamin Moore has remained steadfast in our business commitment to quality, integrity and distribution of our products. Our leaders and employees continue to be held to the high standards of our core values.

As an entity of Berkshire Hathaway company, we not only have a responsibility to our stakeholders—employees, retailers, customers and communities—but also an obligation to the leaders and shareholders of our parent company, and we adhere to the Berkshire Hathaway Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and Prohibited Business Practices.

Led by our CEO who has 35 years of service with the company, along with our executive leadership team, and senior management, Benjamin Moore is guided by a group of experienced professionals focused on the longevity of our business and providing a portfolio of products that meet the needs of our customers.

The last year was filled with unprecedented challenges from the ongoing pandemic to the disruption in supply chain and labor shortages felt across all sectors. Our Business Continuity task force continued to meet regularly throughout 2021, evaluating risks and working to maintain a sustainable business model ensuring we had the right products available to meet the needs of our customers while continuing to keep proper safety measures in place for our employees.

Our Commitment to Information Security and Privacy

Benjamin Moore is committed to achieving and maintaining the trust of our customers and partners. We strive to provide a robust security and privacy program to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information we collect and process:

  • Confidentiality - Prevent the disclosure of information to unauthorized individuals or systems
  • Integrity - Maintain and assure the accuracy and consistency of data over its entire lifecycle
  • Availability - Confirm information is accessible when needed
Our Information Security Program is designed to protect information assets against a range of rapidly evolving threats and includes identifying, mitigating and reporting on information and cybersecurity risks. We established best practices, such as multi-factor authentication, encryption, virtual private networks (VPN), and third-party risk assessments to ensure our systems are as secure as possible. To maintain the trust of our customers and partners, we use a regular testing program to ensure that our network systems, and applications are appropriately aligned with current cybersecurity standards.
