BSkyB makes boardroom changes

UK pay TV operator BSkyB has made further changes to its board as part of the ongoing programme to replace current directors as they retire.

Gail Rebuck has retired as a director after a nine-year stint, during which she served as a member of the board’s Audit Committee and as chairman of the Bigger Picture Committee. She has been replaced by Tracy Clarke, who has been appointed to the board as an independent non-executive director.

Clarke is group head of human resources and communications at Standard Chartered Bank, where she has worked for over 26 years in a variety of roles in human resources, corporate affairs, wholesale and retail banking in the UK and Hong Kong.

Nicholas Ferguson, chairman of BSkyB, said: “On behalf of the board and shareholders, I would like to express our gratitude to Dame Gail Rebuck for her very significant contribution to BSkyB. Her expertise and counsel have been greatly valued during a period of successful growth for the company. In particular, I would like to pay tribute to her support, through her chairmanship of the Bigger Picture committee, for BSkyB’s growing contribution to the community in which we operate. We are delighted to welcome Tracy Clarke to the board and look forward to her contribution over the coming years. Her expertise in banking, corporate affairs, human resources and leadership and team development will further strengthen the skills of our board.”
