    Whomever the board selects as a replacement. It could be someone internal or they may go outside the company.

    A new chair is nominated by the board or by a major shareholder. Then there is a vote to approve them at the next shareholders meeting.

    If the current chair can't stay until a replacement is confirmed, the board picks a temporary chair.
