Clearwire's (CLWR +2.4%) directors elect John Stanton as the new chairman, replacing Craig McCaw, who abruptly resigned last month. An industry veteran, Stanton has been a company director since 2008. Earlier this month, the board also appointed former CEO of Clearwire Benjamin Wolff as director to fill McCaw's empty slot.
