A pair of hedge funds has notched a quick victory over the Williams Cos.
Corvex Management and Soroban Capital Partners in December demanded that Williams add both firms’ founders to its board immediately. Last week, Williams acceded, announcing that Soroban’s Eric Mandelblatt would become a director shortly.
