I think you are misunderstanding. The Board will meet to discuss and approve the recommendation of the C-level managers. In order to properly carry out the Board's supervisory duties, we can and should take advice from those who are best situated. We have not transferred the legal right and responsibility onto the C-level managers - we have indicated to them that we trust that they will make a reasonable recommendation. If, contrary to all expectations, they came back with a recommendation for Donald Duck or Donald Trump or some other cartoon character, we'd obviously refuse their recommendation as would be our fiduciary duty. --Jimbo _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
