Meet Disney's newly elected board

Disney shares have jumped 31% this year, outpacing the S&P 500's 9%

It's been a bruising few months for Disney CEO Bob Iger as he worked to fend off activist investor Nelson Peltz, whose Trian Fund Management lost a bid for two seats on the media giant's board of directors at Wednesday's annual meeting. 

"Now that this distracting proxy contest is behind us, we’re eager to focus 100% of our attention on our most important priorities: growth and value creation for our shareholders and creative excellence for our consumers," Iger said in a statement following the vote.
