Highlights

Two new independent directors on the heels of new CEO. FedEx added two independent directors, Amy Lane and Jim Vena, to its board, in coordination with activist investor, D. E. Shaw. A third independent director will be added to the board in consultation with D. E. Shaw group. Lane brings retail expertise while Vena spent over 40 years in the railroad industry at both Union Pacific (UNP) and Canadian National Railway Company (CNI) as Chief Operating Officer. These board changes come close on the heels of the June 1 appointment of Raj Subramaniam as CEO from founder and former-CEO Frederick W. Smith (who becomes executive chairman of the board). The two additions plus one retirement will leave FedEx with a 14-person board.
