General Motors Company (GM)
Voluntary submission by John Chevedden, P.O. Box 2673, Redondo Beach, California 90278
Shareholder, General Motors Company
Please vote against Mary Barra, Theodore Solso and Patricia Russo
General Motors Company shareholders will not be able to attend the June 4, 2019 GM annual meeting. The location of the meeting is probably a secret. However GM shareholders will be able to sit in front of a computer screen and listen to the annual meeting. And if that is not enough – a large percentage of GM shareholders will need to turn on their computers before 5:00 am in order to listen to Mary Barra read before a microphone.
This raises the question of whether Mary Barra considers in-person contact with shareholders a nuisance.
An in-person annual meeting is a motivator of good performance by management and directors. Who wants to stand in front of a live audience and explain shrinking sales, epic recalls and loss of market share? It is so much easier to explain it to a microphone.
This is to recommend an Against vote in regard to:
Mary Barra, Chairman and CEO
Theodore Solso, Lead Director
Patricia Russo, who chairs the GM Governance Committee
These directors can be considered the directors most responsible for a fake annual meeting. Patricia Russo also chairs an underperforming company, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company, which was an early supporter of fake annual meetings.
