Disney (NYSE:DIS) shareholders have turned down a proposal to separate the chairman and CEO positions following the departure of Robert Iger, who currently holds both jobs. Sixty-five percent of shareholders voting in the company's annual general meeting turned down the measure.
Iger plans to retire as CEO in March 2015. His contract keeps him in the chairman job until the end of June 2016.
Meanwhile, all 10 existing board members were reelected in the AGM. None received less than 86.6% of the vote; Iger's tally was 98.3%. Additionally, the company unveiled the first model image of Shanghai Disneyland, the latest iteration of its popular theme park. It is slated to open at the end of 2015.
