The Company is governed by a board of managers. There are currently five managers, four of whom are “independent,” as that term is defined under applicable laws and regulations. The fifth manager is the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, James L. Williams, who currently serves as Board chair. In addition to Mr. Williams, Board leadership is provided by a lead independent manager who presides at regular sessions of non-management directors and interacts with the Company’s stockholders and other constituents.
