Ten Network Holdings has appointed Lachlan Murdoch's partner in Illyria, Siobhan McKenna, as a director of the company.
McKenna joins the board as a nominee of Cavalane Holdings, the company through which James Packer bought his share in Ten. Cavalane has not a had a representative on the board since Packer resigned around the James Warburton/Seven legal tussle.
Murdoch's stake in Ten is bought through Illyria.
In addition to investment company Illyria, which also has an interest in DMG Radio, McKenna is also a non-executive director of NBN Co, a commissioner (on leave) of the Productivity Commission and a non-executive director of The Australian Ballet.
Murdoch said: “The board of Ten welcoms Siobhan, having regard to her extensive media experience, and knows she will make a significant contribution as a director of Ten in the future.”
