Keith Meister & Eric Mandelblatt Step Down From Williams Board

Keith Meister's activist hedge fund firm Corvex Management has filed an amended 13D regarding its stake in Williams Companies (WMB) jointly along with Soroban Capital's Eric Mandelblatt.

Per the filing, the two gentlemen have stepped down from Williams' board of directors since the company was unwilling to replace Alan Armstrong as CEO.
