Publishing head Gail Rebuck is third to quit the board of BSkyB
Dame Gail Rebuck has become the third director to stand down from the BSkyB board since November, after criticism the broadcaster's board is not independent enough.
Dame Gail, who is head of the Random House publishing group, is leaving Sky's board after nine years. She will be replaced by Standard Chartered Bank's group head of human resources and communications, Tracy Clarke, who joins as an independent non-executive director. Dame Gail's is the latest departure from the Sky board in the wake of criticisms that Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, which owns 39 per cent of the broadcaster, wields too much influence.
Allan Leighton, the former Post Office chairman, went in November after 11 years and was replaced by Martin Gilbert, the founder of Aberdeen Asset Management. Matthieu Pigasse, a senior adviser at the Lazard investment bank, took over David Evans' board position.
