FedEx Express (FedEx) has announced the appointment of Karen Reddington as regional president of FedEx Express Europe and CEO of TNT.
Reddington joined FedEx Express in 1997 as an operations research adviser in Hong Kong. She was later appointed regional president of Asia Pacific in 2015. During that time, she led the regional integration of TNT, the launch of expanded services for small and medium enterprises and the FedEx response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Asia Pacific.
In her new role, she succeeds Bert Nappier, who served as regional president and CEO since June 2018. He will now assume the role of executive vice president, treasurer, tax, and corporate development for FedEx Corp.
“Europe presents tremendous opportunities for FedEx” said Reddington, “We have a strong foundation in Europe, and I look forward to building on that foundation for the business and our customers.”
Reddington will lead more than 50,000 team members across nearly 50 countries. She will continue to drive the regional strategy, including the company’s expansion into e-commerce and continued investment in its road and air networks.
