Asked in Securities Law for Florida

Q: What can registered agent do when a director is non-US citizen in non operating corporation?

A registered agent, also the incorporator of a new Florida corporation. The agent, also listed as a director and president, filed for the corporation. After filing, the second director, vp, who is a non-US citizen, does not want to cooperate with the agent to complete the filing. The corporation has not had any initial shareholder meetings nor any resolutions signed. The registered agent already opened a bank account in the corporation name using online banking and using his personal US social security number to guarantee to the bank. How can the registered agent, president, remove the non cooperating director from the articles of incorporation, since there was no shareholder meeting or resolutions or By-Laws? Does the listed director, vp, even without any contributions or shareholder meetings, have any rights to the corporation? Can the registered agent amend the name and address of the corporation and remove the non cooperating director?
