The retail giant also named Andy Bryant, who has been serving as a board member for a long time, as Lead Independent Director.
Talking about Andy’s appointment, Tim said “We feel fortunate to have a seasoned leader like Andy as a strong independent voice on our board.”
He added “Andy’s wealth of experience at Intel has led him to be a source of tremendous insight for our board and I look forward to working even closer with him as he serves as Lead Independent Director.”
Andy, reportedly, served as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Intel Corporation from May 2012 to January 2020. He, however, announced that he will be quitting from Intel’s board following Intel’s 2020 annual stockholders’ meeting.
