Sports Director shareholders re-elect Mike Ashley and Keith Hallawell

Endaba Group

88% of Sports Direct’s shareholders voted in favour to re-elect the retailer’s founder and wonder Mike Ashley as Executive Deputy Chairman and 93% voted to re-elect Hellawell as Chairman. This is shortly after protests which were focused on Sports Direct’s use of zero-hours contracts its handling of USC’s administration and Ashley’s failure to be present at board meetings.

Chief Executive Dave Forsey has also been re-elected as a Director. Matt Pearson, Chief Financial Office since June, was re-elected to the board, as were Non-Executive Directors Simon Bentley, Dave Singleton and Claire Jenkins.
