The description of your dependent variable suggests that 0 is not a possible value: a director, by definition, serves on at least one board. Is the dependent variable actually the number of boards minus 1? If 0 is not a possible value of the dependent variable, you should consider a truncated distribution, and such a distribution may be appropriate instead of subtracting 1 (if that is the current definition).
