Boeing shareholders vote to re-elect departing CEO to company's board [View all]

Boeing’s departing CEO, Dave Calhoun, was re-elected to stay on the troubled company’s board on Friday, even as the planemaker’s chair said he was gathering feedback from customers and others in its search for a new chief executive.

Boeing is dealing with a sprawling crisis that includes multiple investigations, possible prosecution for past actions and slumping production of its strongest-selling jet.

Shareholders voted at Boeing’s annual general meeting (AGM) for Calhoun to remain on the board in a preliminary tally.

The proxy adviser Glass Lewis had recommended shareholders vote against the re-election of Calhoun and two other directors to Boeing’s board, citing dissatisfaction over efforts to transform the planemaker’s safety culture.
