Chipotle’s investors have not been all that happy with the chain’s response to an E. coli outbreak last year.

Now they have a chance at a small change in leadership: The company is “looking for another director to round out its nine-person board, responding to investors’ criticism that its insular board is hindering the burrito chain’s turnaround,” Bloomberg reports.

The current leadership has faced waves of trouble from shareholders. Most recently, a lawsuit alleged that board members and executives had sold off stock based on insider knowledge ahead of the crisis.
