Blockbuster board member resigns

Dallas Blockbuster said Monday Jackie Clegg has resigned from its board of directors effective March 5, having served six and a half years as a director.

Clegg's husband, Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd, announced in January that he would not seek a sixth term.

Clegg is managing partner of Clegg International Consultants LLC, and has been a board member at Blockbuster since July 2003.

Blockbuster also said that Joseph Fitzsimmons has been nominated to fill a seat vacated by billionaire Carl Icahn, who resigned in January.

Fitzsimmons will stand for election at the company's May 26 shareholders' meeting, Blockbuster said.

Fitzsimmons has served as senior VP finance and treasurer of Wal-Mart Stores and CFO for Wendy's International.
