Leo Hindrey, the former cable guy turned CEO of Global Crossing is one of the few people in telecom who makes lively copy. Not the one to pull any punches, it was always fun chatting with him. Hollywood Reporter says that Hindery, who in his most recent gig was CEO of the YES Network has started a private investment firm InterMedia Advisors, which will specialize in the media industry. ‘Hindery and partner Peter Kern will make mid- to large-size private equity investments in various sectors of the broader media and communications industries with a focus on the United States. Former Sen. Tom Daschle will chair InterMedia’s executive advisory board,’ the report says. Well, you can’t have it all – his choice of advisers is something well… Reuters has some stuff as well.
