We’ve had a hard time keeping up with all of the changes in Clearwire’s board room. But there’s even more in store. Today, it was announced that Clearwire nominated Kathleen Rae and Jennifer Vogel to board positions, a move that comes as the Kirkland broadband wireless company seals a key wholesale agreement with Sprint Nextel.
Rae is slated to to fill a seat vacated by Peter Currie, who notified that he would not stand for re-election. Meanwhile, Vogel’s appointment comes as part of the appointment through Sprint Nextel, the largest shareholder in Clearwire.
Rae is the former president and chief operating officer at InfoSpace, while Vogel previously worked at Continental Airlines.
Earlier this year, Intel executive vice president Arvind Sohani stepped down from the board. That followed the departures of Sprint executives Dan Hesse, Keith Cowan and Steven Elfman who left last year, as well as Clearwire founder Craig McCaw who stepped down last December.
Here’s the board as it stands now, though Currie and Frank Ianna are on the way out. The company’s board is now led by interim CEO John Stanton.
Shares of Clearwire fell more than four percent today, despite the new deal with Sprint Nextel which could deliver $1 billion to the company over the next two years.
