The director-by-director vote tallies filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission followed last Thursday’s annual meeting, where the Louisville-based spirits giant said only that the full slate of 12 directors had been re-elected.
As is often the case, directors received varying degrees of support. Here’s the tally of “for” votes each one got; names are listed in order of those getting the highest to lowest share of all eligible votes. Board Chairman George Garvin Brown IV won the most: 95.72%.
The Brown family controls the nearly 150-year-old company through their 67% ownership of all voting class A shares.
Updated 8:40 p.m. Also today, Garvin Brown and newly re-elected Director Augusta Brown Holland were among a group of officers and executives who filed updated stock ownership notices with the SEC. The 22 separate Form 4 documents are in the SEC filings section of the company’s investor relations webpage.
