Mr. Yoshitani has been the CEO of the Port of Seattle since March of 2007.

“It’s a real honor to welcome Tay onto our Board of Directors. He’s an outstanding individual whose life accomplishments make him a unique addition. We’re excited to draw on his expertise and we’re very grateful for his willingness to serve,” said Peter J. Rose, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Tay brings a wealth of experience and a distinctive set of talents and qualifications that will be of immediate benefit to Expeditors and to our shareholders. He adds a perspective on international trade to our Board that is as unique as it is relevant. We have a very accomplished Board of Directors whose members have already distinguished themselves in business and in higher education and in the community, and we appreciate their contributions. Tay’s addition will both enhance and complement the skills and abilities of our Board of Directors who have served the Company and its shareholders so ably over the years,” concluded Mr. Rose.
