Investor Bill Ackman has put up his own slate of five directors for the companies board. Here's a look at the face-offs.
For Target: George Tamke, partner in Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, an investment company. He was previously co-CEO of Emerson Electric and interim CEO of Kinko's. Target says his broad business sense is very valuable to the company.
VS: William Ackman, founder, Pershing Square Capital Management (far right). Currently holds a 7.8% stake (in stock and options) in Target and says he will be a better representative for shareholders than the current board, which collectively holds just 0.3% of the stock outstanding. His Target-only investment fund is down 85% in less than two years.
