FedEx Corporation has advanced the commencement date of its new chief executive officer and president David Bronczek by 11 months, and picked David Cunningham to take over Bronczek’s recent position as president and CEO of FedEx Express.

Bronczek was originally due to start in his new role in Januray 2018 but the company saw it fit to prepone the commencement date at a time when it is integrating TNT into FedEx Express.

He will commence the roles next month and will be responsible for all of FedEx operating companies, and their marketing and sales divisions.

"Bronczek is uniquely qualified to take on the position of president and chief operating officer," FedEx Corporation chairman Frederick Smith says.

"Under Dave’s leadership for the past 17 years, the FedEx Express team has achieved outstanding financial results and service levels."

According to the company, Cunningham will be responsible for the leadership and direction of FedEx Express and TNT.

He will also serve as a member of the FedEx Corporation’s strategic management committee.

"Beginning more than 30 years ago at the Memphis World Hub, David Cunningham has progressed through the FedEx ranks and served in leadership roles in finance, as well as domestic and international operations." Smith says.

"These experiences have prepared him to lead FedEx Express – our largest operating company."
