Zendesk Expands Leadership team with 3 Women, Lisa Chang joins Coca-Cola as Chief People Officer, and FedEx COO Resigns in Surprise Move

Happy Presidents’ Day to our members in the United States and apologies to our non-US members for the delayed newsletter! Presidents’ Day is a public holiday in the U.S. and was established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington but is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all US Presidents – past and present.

In a surprise move, David Bronczek has resigned as President and Chief Operating Officer of FedEx due to personal reasons. Bronczek, 64, was widely seen as next in line to take over from Fred Smith, 74, who is currently serving as CEO. The move could be related to the appointment of Raj Subramaniam who takes over as President and COO effective March 1, 2019. The move immediately catapults Subramaniam to the favorite to take over when Fred Smith retires. Read more here.

Joining the company are Elisabeth Zornes, former general manager of global support for Microsoft Office, as Zendesk’s first chief customer officer; former Adobe executive Colleen Berube as chief information officer; and former Salesforce executive Shawna Wolverton as senior vice president, product management.
