NEW YORK, April 5 JPMorgan Chase & Co
shareholders will again vote on a proposal calling for the board
to select a chairman who is not the company's chief executive,
according to a proxy statement filed on Wednesday for the
company's annual meeting on May 16.
The board said in the proxy that it is against the measure,
which was proposed by a shareholder who contends that good
corporate governance requires a independent chairman. The board
and current Chairman and Chief Executive Jamie Dimon have
defeated similar proposals in the past.
