Miranda Curtis has been nominated for election to the board of directors at Liberty Global at the upcoming 2010 annual meeting of stockholders.
She has also just resigned from her position of president of Liberty Global Japan, a post she had held since 2005, following the completion of LGIs’ stake in Jupiter Telecommunications.
Commenting on Curtis’ nomination, Mike Fries, president and CEO of Liberty Global, said: “Miranda has been instrumental to our success in Japan. Under her leadership, J:COM developed into one of our best performing operations. Her diplomatic and managerial skills have been of great value to the Company, and I am personally very pleased that we’ll be able to continue our working relationship at the board level.”
John Malone, chairman of the board of directors of LGI, added: “Miranda and I have worked together in one capacity or another for nearly 20 years. Her knowledge of our international business, and the media and communications landscape, is extensive. I could not think of a better addition to LGI’s board.”
Curtis has been active in the cable and satellite industry for 20 years. She is also a director of National Express Group plc and is a member of the Board of Governors of the London based Institute for Government.
