Rolla Huff, the executive hired to lead Internet Services Provider EarthLink (Nasdaq: ELNK) last year, is now the company’s board chairman as well.

EarthLink named Huff to the chairman’s post on Monday. He replaces Robert Kavner, who will remain on the board as an independent lead director.

Huff has made many changes at EarthLink, including slashing the firm’s workforce and pulling back on municipal WiFi network efforts.
