NEW YORK (AP) — Klaus Kleinfeld, who was ousted as CEO of Arconic after sending a threatening letter to the company’s largest shareholder, has resigned from the board of directors of Morgan Stanley.
Morgan Stanley, a New York-based investment bank, disclosed the resignation in a regulatory filing Friday.
Arconic announced Kleinfeld’s exit Monday.
The hedge fund Elliott Management, which for months pushed Arconic to replace Kleinfeld, published a letter it said Kleinfeld sent to its founder and president, Paul Singer.
