The board revolt at Exxon Mobil is complete. Three alternate nominees will now sit as directors, while one director Exxon added only in February is no longer on the board. Exxon confirmed Wednesday the preliminary voting results from last week’s dramatic annual shareholder meeting (OD May26'21). Alexander Karsner, senior strategist at Google affiliate X, received enough votes to join the board, making him the third nominee backed by activist shareholder Engine No. 1 to make the cut. Results that day showed that Greg Goff, former CEO of US refiner Andeavor, and Kaisa Hietala, former head of renewable products at downstream firm Neste, were granted seats, but other votes were still being tallied (OD May27'21). Exxon's New Board Members Name Credentials Gregory Goff Former CEO, Andeavor Kaisa Hietala Former EVP Renewable Products, Neste Alexander Karsner Senior Strategist, X; Former US Asst.
