INDEPENDENT NEWS and Media shareholders have elected Leslie Buckley as its new chairman, over a year after he was ousted from the board during a re-election vote.

Buckley, who founded Esat Digifone with Denis O’Brien, was a representative of O’Brien on the board at the time of his ousting in June 2011. O’Brien is INM’s largest shareholder.

INM confirmed the appointment of Buckley as chairman this evening, along with the election of Jerome Kennedy, Triona Mullane and Len O’Hagan as directors of the company.

“All resolutions were passed on a show of hands” during an extraordinary general meeting today, INM group chief executive Vincent Crowley said in a statement.

Crowley was appointed Group CEO following the resignation of Gavin O’Reilly from the post in April.
