David Drybrough has been appointed as interim chair of the board of directors of CanWest Global Communications Corp. He replaces Frank McKenna, who resigned the position to take up the post of Canada’s ambassador to the United States. Drybrough was appointed to the board in March 2003 (CCR, March 13/03), and has served on the company’s audit committee. He retains his position of chair of that committee. McKenna was on CanWest’s board for six years. The company is currently looking for two independent directors for its board to fill McKenna’s position and that of Jalynn Bennett, who decided not to stand for re-election at the company’s recent annual meeting.
