Windstream names Carol Armitage to board of directors

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Carol Armitage, vice chairman of Scala, Inc., an international multi-media software development company, has been elected to the Windstream Corporation (NYSE: WIN) board of directors, effective today. 

"Carol has 20 years of executive management experience in product and technology design and development for wireline, wireless and cable TV businesses, and her technical background brings an added dimension to our board leadership," said Jeff Gardner, president and CEO of Windstream.

Armitage has been a director of Scala, Inc. since 2000. She is a former chairman of the board of YDI Wireless, a leading world supplier of high-speed wireless data communications systems.

A former senior vice president of technology and strategy at General Instrument, Armitage also held various engineering and management positions at Bell Laboratories and Network Systems during her 17-year career there.

Armitage holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware and a master’s degree from Princeton University, both in electrical engineering.

Windstream’s board of directors has affirmatively determined Armitage qualifies as an independent board member under New York Stock Exchange listing requirements, and as a result of her appointment, seven of Windstream’s nine directors satisfy such independence requirements.
