July 18, 2013

On July 18, Mr. Schleyer appeared on Corporate Board Member’s This Week in the Boardroom to discuss withholding votes for corporate directors. Mr. Schleyer described how, at many companies, each director is up for reelection every year, which gives shareholders an opportunity to use the withholding of votes as a vehicle to express displeasure about director or company performance. He went on to discuss the causes and implications of this trend, as well as the importance of shareholder outreach.
