Board of directors.
Our board of directors currently consists of ten members. Dave Duffield is our chairman of the board, George Still is vice chairman of the board and lead independent director, and Mike Stankey is vice chairman of the board. Our other directors are Aneel Bhusri (who is also our chief executive officer), A. George (“Skip”) Battle, Christa Davies, Carl Eschenbach, Mike McNamara, Lee J. Styslinger III and Jerry Yang. Each of our non-employee directors is “independent” as defined by the rules of the Nasdaq Global Select Market. We have a classified board of directors, with each class serving staggered three-year terms. In addition, we have established an Audit Committee, a Compensation Committee and Nominating and Governance Committee, and an Investment Committee. Our board and committee structure, as well as biographies for each of our directors, are set forth below.
