Section 141(a) of the DGCL provides that the board of directors of a company shall manage the affairs and affairs of the company, unless otherwise provided in the instrument of incorporation. If investors, as shareholders, wish to have some control over the appointment or dismissal of the CEO by the board of directors, the lawyer could consider negotiating a class vote, a protective provision or any other blocking right over the recruitment and dismissal of senior managers and introducing such a right into the company`s constitution in order to avoid arguments, that shareholder control over the appointment and removal of officers by the Board of Directors is the management power of the Board of Directors pursuant to Section 141(a) of the DGCL. In large listed companies, shareholders own the company, but have only limited power to influence decisions. The board of directors and executives exercise much of the power. Shareholders exercise their power over meetings, usually by voting for directors. Timely notification is required: no more than sixty days or less than ten days before the meeting, in accordance with section 7.05 of the Revised Model Business Corporation Act (RMBCA). . . .
