Our Board of Directors is chaired by Mr. Martin H. Nesbitt. Our Chief Executive Officer, Mr. David J. Lesar, serves as a member of our Board but does not serve as a member of any of its standing committees.
Our Board meets throughout the year with each of the Board committees typically meeting at least four times during the year. Directors are expected to attend annual meetings of shareholders. The Board of Directors routinely meets in executive sessions, without members of management present, to consider matters requiring the Board’s attention.
