DALLAS (AP) - Exxon Mobil Corporation's shareholder meeting is
under way in Dallas.
And Wednesday's meeting could be a tough one for Rex Tillerson,
the chairman and CEO of the world's largest publicly traded oil
company. He's fighting to hang on to the two top jobs, while some
members of the Rockefeller family and other shareholders push to
separate the roles.
Rockefeller family members and others have said they're
concerned Irving-based Exxon Mobil is too focused on short-term
gains from soaring oil prices and should do more to invest in
cleaner technology for the future.
Outside the meeting, it wasn't so raucous.
A small contingent of about two dozen protesters showed up,
carrying signs and occasionally chanting. A small plane flew
overhead a couple times, towing a banner urging an end to the Iraq
war and boycotts for Exxon and other major oil companies.
