    Abstract

    The role of banks is integral to the economic development of any country. Given the renewed attention on the corporate governance in banks with the global financial crises, this paper investigates the relevance of board size, board composition and CEO qualities in the banks and their performance. Thus, the following paragraphs will elaborate on the development of hypotheses to test whether good corporate governance system can contribute towards higher banks performance. This research is different from other studies, both practical and theoretical, as the object of study is commercial banks in developing country.
