John Chevedden’s shareholder proposal gets majority support:
On Monday, [Boeing] shareholders also narrowly approved a measure backing a policy requiring an independent board chairman. Boeing has had a separate chairman and chief executive since October.
Boeing said each of the company’s 12 board nominees received a majority of votes from shareholders, though five directors got a significant number of no votes.
Two proxy advisers, Glass Lewis and Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS), had recommended that Boeing shareholders vote against key board members to show objections to the company’s handling of the 737 MAX crisis.
