American Express Names Laureen E. Seeger General Counsel

American Express Company (NYSE:AXP) today announced the appointment of Laureen E. Seeger as executive vice president and general counsel. Ms. Seeger joins American Express from McKesson Corporation, the largest healthcare services company in North America, where she led the Law, Public Affairs, Compliance and Corporate Secretary functions while guiding the company through complex legal and regulatory environments and contributing to its financial growth.

Ms. Seeger, 52, has served as executive vice president, general counsel and chief compliance officer of McKesson since 2006. She joined McKesson in 2000 as general counsel of the corporation’s technology division. In this role, she provided leadership through complex M&A transactions and product evolutions, while building the law department and enhancing client service.

At American Express, Ms. Seeger will lead the company’s Legal, Compliance and Ethics and Corporate Secretary organizations. She will take on additional responsibility for Federal and State Government Affairs later this year.

“We are excited to have one of the world’s top legal leaders become general counsel of American Express. Not only is Laureen a gifted legal strategist, litigator and an expert in managing compliance and regulatory affairs, throughout her career she has first and foremost been a catalyst for business growth. She will be an outstanding addition as the new leader of a world-class general counsel’s office,” said Kenneth I. Chenault, chairman and chief executive officer of American Express.

“I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to join the outstanding team at American Express,” said Ms. Seeger. “Like McKesson, American Express is guided by a deep set of values, starting with a fundamental commitment to making a positive difference in people’s lives through its products and services. I look forward to helping American Express realize its vision to become the world’s most respected service brand in my capacity as general counsel.”

Ms. Seeger will report to Mr. Chenault and be a member of the company’s Operating Committee.
