Subramaniam has been with FedEx for more than 27 years and has held various executive level positions in several operating companies and international regions.
He began his career in Memphis and subsequently moved to Hong Kong, where he oversaw marketing and customer service for the Asia Pacific region. He then took over as president of FedEx Express in Canada before moving back to the US as senior vice president of international marketing. He was then promoted to executive vice president of marketing in 2013 at FedEx Services, prior to being named executive vice president and chief marketing and communications officer at FedEx Corporation in 2017.
"On behalf of the Board and management team, we recognise Dave for his years of service to FedEx. FedEx has a deep bench of talent, and I am confident that the transition will be seamless," said Frederick W Smith, chairman and chief executive officer, FedEx Corporation. "Raj has significant experience in many areas of our portfolio, which will be vital as he steps into this position."
