Telecom Shareholders Welcome New Directors

Telecom shareholders re-elected businessmen Rob McLeod and Wayne Boyd as directors of the company at Telecom’s annual meeting in Wellington today.

This follows their appointment to the Board in July this year. Shareholders also re-elected Rod McGeoch and Michael Tyler who were standing for re-election by rotation.

Approximately 110 shareholders who attended the meeting were asked to vote on six resolutions, all of which were passed by a substantial majority.
