FedEx announces CFO transition

Alan Graf to retire after 40 years with FedEx

Current Corporate Vice President and Treasurer Mike Lenz has been named Graf’s successor and will assume the CFO role in September.

Graf started with FedEx in 1980, becoming CFO of FedEx Express in 1991 and assuming the same role with parent company, FedEx Corp., in 1998.

Many large acquisitions occurred during Graf’s tenure, including Caliber System, Viking Freight, American Freightways, Kinko’s, Parcel Direct, Watkins Motor Lines, GENCO and TNT Express.

“In his 40 years at FedEx, Alan has helped build and transform this company. He has been part of every significant decision and helped navigate tremendous growth, strategic investments, international acquisitions and global challenges. FedEx would not be the $69 billion globally admired corporation we are today without his leadership,” said FedEx Chairman and CEO Frederick W. Smith.

The press release stated that Lenz will become executive vice president and CFO-elect June 1.

Lenz joined the company in 2005 as vice president of finance in the brick-and-mortar printing and shipping unit, FedEx Office. In 2010, Lenz was promoted to staff vice president of strategic finance at FedEx Corp. Lenz was promoted to his current role in 2012.

“Mike’s extensive experience in our industry and his financial background have proven him to be an asset to FedEx. I look forward to having Mike join the Executive Committee for the corporation as we continue driving the strategy for long-term growth and profitability,” Smith said.

The company reports fiscal third-quarter 2020 earnings after the market closes on March 17.
