ALL IN THE FAMILY: In Indianapolis, Curt Cavin reported former IMS Corp. CEO Tony George's return to the Hulman & Co. BOD "was a compromise." George "wanted back in the mix, and members of the family that supported that thought that letting him back on the Hulman & Co. board was OK." The Hulman & Co. BOD reportedly "will decide who serves on the IMS Corp. board, and the thing to remember is that there is now three new non-family votes on the Hulman & Co. board." Cavin added, "That’s the part of last week’s change that most people skipped over. I find it interesting because Tony George always seemed against new voices in the family business until he was forced out. Now he supports it. How those men vote will be interesting. We’ll see if it changes the dynamics of the sport" (INDYSTAR.com, 2/21).
