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 more than 30 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.

In 2020, the company formed a cross-functional Corporate Responsibility/Sustainability group focused on gathering metrics, reviewing programming and incorporating our Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) efforts into many facets of the business.

Additionally, a Business Continuity task force was established consisting of a multidisciplinary group of senior leaders to ensure the company is well positioned to minimize the impact of risk and potential crises.
