Week in review

As all of us continue to navigate the global coronavirus crisis, we would like to take a moment to thank the people who are working tirelessly on the front lines of the pandemic – our health care workers, grocery workers, police officers, childcare workers and many others providing essential services – to ensure our collective health and safety.

We are starting to see less executive movement, which is not surprising given that companies are primarily focused on crisis management for their businesses. As the situation remains fluid, we’ll continue to cover the executive moves that occur during this unprecedented time.

This week, Altria’s chief executive is taking a temporary medical leave of absence as a result of contracting coronavirus, becoming one of the first CEOs of a major U.S. company to be diagnosed with COVID-19. Read more about this and other notable executive changes:
