Clearwire’s board continues to morph and change. And here’s the latest development at the Kirkland broadband wireless provider: Former Speakeasy CEO and Concur Technologies executive Bruce Chatterley has been appointed to the board.
Clearwire has been struggling to cut costs, laying off fifteen percent of its staff last year. Late last year, Clearwire founder and chairman Craig McCaw resigned, with former Voicestream Wireless CEO John Stanton eventually picking up the post. A number of other top execs have left the company, and the board has been constantly changing over the past year.
In addition to Chatterley, the company named Kathleen Rae and Jennifer Vogel to board positions in April.
Clearwire is backed by Sprint Nextel Corporation, Google, Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks LLC and Eagle River Holdings.
Chatterley, 48, most recently served as president of business markets for telecommunications company Megapath. He was nominated to the board by Intel, which also holds a large stake in Clearwire. (Intel was an investor in Speakeasy, a Seattle Internet service provider that eventually sold to Best Buy).
