Shaw Adds Former B.C. Premier Christy Clark to its Board of Directors

Shaw announced this morning it has added former B.C. Premier, Christy Clark, to its Board of Directors.

Clark was B.C. Premier from 2011-2017, a reign as the longest-serving female premier in Canadian history, leading the province’s Liberal Party.

“We are very honoured to have Christy join us as a Board member. She brings to our Board a breadth and depth of relationships across Canada, both from politics and business, particularly in British Columbia, including in our largest single market, the greater Vancouver area,” said JR Shaw, Executive Chair, in a press release.

“I look forward to joining and making contributions to the Board as Shaw continues on its journey as a leading connectivity provider of broadband, video, voice and wireless services in Canada,” said Clark. She added, “I welcome the opportunity to support the company in growing its presence in British Columbia and its other key markets.”

Shaw recently announced it would start selling Freedom Mobile offerings at Walmart locations across Canada, while announced it had added 54,200 new wireless customers in its third fiscal quarter, despite a reported loss of $91 million, due to a massive write-down on its TV investment, Corus Entertainment.
