Activist investor Carl Icahn's associate Vincent Intrieri will become one of Chesapeake Energy Corp.'s new directors, CNBC reported Monday.
Chesapeake and Icahn declined to comment on the report.
Intrieri spoke at Chesapeake's annual shareholders meeting earlier this month, praising CEO Aubrey McClendon, while also calling for stronger board oversight.
Chesapeake has said it will announce this week four new directors — one named by Icahn and three selected by Southeastern Asset Management, Chesapeake's largest shareholder.
