American Express CEO Will Be Replaced

American Express’ CEO Kenneth Chenault will be replaced by Stephen Squeri who has been vice chairman since 2015 on February 1st, 2018. Squeri’s previous positions at American Express have been as follows:

  • July 2015-current: Vice chairman and led the Business-to-Business group
  • November 2011 to July 2015: President of Global Corporate Services at American Express

  • October 2009 – November 2011  Chief Information Officer and

Chenault stepping down shouldn’t come as a surprise due to American Express falling share price since the loss of the Costco portfolio.
