Tony George has been voted back onto the board of directors of Hulman & Company, which oversees the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Hulman & Company voted yesterday (17 February) in a regularly scheduled shareholders meeting to add four members to the existing board, expanding it from four members to eight members. The additional members are Anton “Tony” H. George, Andre B. Lacy, Michael L. Smith and Jerry W. Throgmartin.
After today’s announcement, composition of the Hulman & Company board is Mari Hulman George, Nancy L. George, M. Josephine George, Katherine M. George-Conforti, Anton “Tony” H. George, Andre B. Lacy, Michael L. Smith and Jerry W. Throgmartin. The first director listed is Tony George's mother, and the next three are his sisters.
According to a report in IBJ.com, "Tony George stepped down as CEO of Hulman and Co. and resigned from its board in June 2009. His departure came after board members—namely Tony’s three sisters—squabbled over his management of the track."
The centennial running of the Indianapolis "500" is 29 May 2011.
