According to votes from Facebook’s annual shareholder meeting last week, 68 percent of outside investors want to see an independent chairman appointed in place of Mark Zuckerberg. Due to Zuckerberg’s chokehold on voting shares of the company, the investors’ vote will have no bearing on his role at the top of the Silicon Valley giant.
Business Insider reports that according to a filing on Monday, Facebook released information on how investors voted on a number of proposals at the company’s annual shareholder meeting last week. According to the report, 68 percent of ordinary investors who are not part of management or members of Facebook’s board want to remove Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as chairman of the board and place an independent figure in the role. 51 percent of outside investors voted in favor of a similar proposal last year.
