Shareholders expressed their reluctance to re-elect Ireena Vittal to the board of Compass Group PLC (CPG.LN) at the company's annual general meeting held on Thursday.

The contract-food-service company announced the results of the meeting on Friday. While all resolutions were passed, Ms. Vittal had 22.4% of votes cast against her reassuming her position as nonexecutive director.

The company commented on the vote saying that it stood behind her.

"Over the last 12 months Ms. Vittal has reduced the number of nonexecutive roles held and the board believes that she continues to discharge her role at Compass Group PLC effectively," it said.

Compass Group said it will engage with shareholders and discuss any concerns about her presence on too many company boards. According to the company website, Ms. Vittal currently sits on the board of Godrej Consumer Products Ltd., WIPRO Ltd., The Indian Hotels Company Ltd., Titan Company Ltd. and Cipla Ltd.
