Gresham, were elected to the Board of Green Dot Corp (NYSE:GDOT), according to the preliminary voting results from the 2016 Annual Meeting. In addition, Harvest Capital Strategies thanked other shareholders for their support, and announced that it is very pleased with the elections, hoping that the new board will work on maximizing shareholder value. Harvest Capital Strategies owns almost 4.6 million Class A Common shares of  Green Dot Corp (NYSE:GDOT), which account for 9.6% of the company’s outstanding class A stock.
