NEW YORK – New York Stock Exchange interim chairman John Reed has proposed trimming the current 27-member board to between 6 and 12 independent directors to make it more accessible and accountable to the general public. Reed released a formal proposal on Nov. 3 to the current board that will vote on the plan Nov. 18. The chairman is also calling for a separate 12 to 18 member executive panel from the securities industry that would handle operations, such as listing standards.
