I also have uneasy feelings about the CEO being a voting member of the
Board, for a number of reasons, not last of which that he/she might find
her/himself in the uncomfortable situation of having to execute a decision
that he voted against.
I had proposed, as Chair of the Board Review WG, to correct what I thought
was an anomaly, but this has been vetoed because the voting rights on the
Board were hardcoded in the CEO's contract. So I proposed to change it
starting from the next CEO.
This seems not to have been done, so maybe that was not the real reason...
