FedEx has announced that T Michael Glenn, executive vice president, market development and corporate communications, will retire from the company with effect from December 31, 2016.

Glenn, 61, has led the company’s marketing, sales, customer service and communications groups for more than 20 years. Robert B Carter, currently chief information officer and co-CEO of FedEx Services with Glenn, will become the CEO of FedEx Services effective January 1, 2017. Carter will oversee the administration of common information technology, sales, solutions, marketing and corporate communications.

In addition, David J Bronczek, CEO of FedEx Express, will become president and chief operating officer of FedEx Corporation on January 1, 2018. Beginning January 1, 2017, Bronczek will also become the chairman of the Revenue Management Committee replacing Glenn.

Frederick W Smith, chairman, president and CEO of FedEx Corporation, said, “Mike Glenn is a 35-year veteran of FedEx, and without a doubt the most brilliant marketer I have ever met. His passionate leadership, strategic vision and intellect have transformed the FedEx portfolio and brand and immeasurably improved global commerce.

“While this is a tremendous loss for FedEx, I commend and admire Mike for this decision as he transitions his focus full time to his family. Mike and his wife Donna have, for many years, dealt with the significant challenge of raising a special needs child, and it is a measure of the man that Mike has decided he must devote even more time to her wellbeing and care.

“It would be impossible to list Mike’s many accomplishments, but I can tell you that our company, brand, and portfolio would not be anything close to what it is today without Mike Glenn.”

Glenn joined FedEx Express in 1981 as a senior sales specialist. He became senior vice president, marketing and corporate communications of FedEx Express in 1993, and assumed responsibilities for customer service the next year. He has been executive vice president, market development and corporate communications of FedEx Corporation since its formation in 1998. He also has served as president and CEO of FedEx Services since 2000.
