Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 21 aprile 2019

Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) today announced that its Board of Directors has unanimously elected Alfred F. Kelly, Jr. as Chair of the Board, effective as of April 16, 2019. Mr. Kelly will continue to serve as Visa’s Chief Executive Officer, a role he has held since December 2016. Mr. Kelly will succeed Robert (Bob) Matschullat as Chair of the Board. Mr. Matschullat will continue to serve on the Board and as Chair of the Board’s Finance Committee. The company also announced that the Board unanimously elected John F. Lundgren, a member of the Board since April 2017, as Lead Independent Director, also beginning April 16, 2019.
In evaluating the Board’s leadership structure, the Board considered the relevant merits of combining the roles of Chair of the Board and Chief Executive Officer and appointing a strong Lead Independent Director, versus keeping the roles of Chair and CEO separate. The Board concluded that Al Kelly was the person best suited to serve as Chair of the Board at this time, providing consistent leadership and a unified voice for the company. In addition, the Board reaffirmed its commitment to independent board leadership by appointing John Lundgren to a robust Lead Independent Director role. Mr. Lundgren is an experienced leader, having led Stanley Black & Decker and The Stanley Works as CEO for 12 years and Chairman for 9 years.“On behalf of the Board, we are pleased to appoint Al as Visa’s Chair, in addition to his continuing role as Chief Executive Officer,” said Bob Matschullat, previous Chair of the Visa Board of Directors. “Al has made a significant impact on the company during the past few years as Visa’s CEO. The Board believes Al’s strategic vision, proven leadership capabilities and deep payments expertise make him the right person to lead Visa both as CEO and as Chair of the Board into the future. The Board is also pleased that John Lundgren, with his decades of leadership experience and fresh perspective in the Board room, has stepped into the role of Lead Independent Director.”
