The National Legal and Policy Center, a right-wing organization that “promotes ethics in public life,” has written to Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey, asking that he “immediately seek the resignation” of Activision-Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick from the company’s board of directors. Paul Chesser, the director of the NLPC’s Corporate Integrity Project, asked that Kotick also be removed from consideration as a director candidate for reappointment at the 2022 Annual Meeting of Shareowners.
“We write to request that you immediately seek the resignation of Robert A. “Bobby” Kotick from his directorship on the Board of The Coca-Cola Company, and that he be removed from consideration as a director candidate for reappointment at the 2022 Annual Meeting of Shareowners,” the letter states. “Should Mr. Kotick refuse to voluntarily leave his directorship, we request that you call a special meeting of the directors to remove him. National Legal and Policy Center promotes ethics in public life, sponsors the Corporate Integrity Project, and is a shareholder in The Coca-Cola Company. We are sponsoring a resolution for the 2022 Annual Shareowners Meeting to implement a policy to make the Board chairman a separate role from the CEO.”
The NLPC pointed out that Coke has been quick to act publicly in other “controversial public policy issues,” and that it’s time they end Bobby Kotick’s affiliation with the brand.
