Telecom Italia says board backs CEO despite criticism of directors

MILAN, June 25 (Reuters) - Telecom Italia (TIM) said on Monday its chief executive Amos Genish regretted recent comments he made about some directors, adding the board still backed him.

Genish said last week there were some individual members on the Telecom Italia board who were “feeding untrue, unreliable, speculation” behind the scenes, interfering with its everyday management.

In a statement TIM said the board had discussed the remarks, acknowledging the CEO’s regret for having made inappropriate comments which, it said, had then been amplified by the media.

“As a result of the discussion, the board confirms that its members share a common vision and objectives for TIM, and continue to support the management team,” it said. (Reporting by Stephen Jewkes Editing by Alexander Smith)
