Reddington heads to Europe for FedEx Express

Karen Reddington

FedEx Express has appointed Karen Reddington as regional president, FedEx Express Europe and chief executive of TNT.

The appointment of Reddington, a 23-year veteran of FedEx Express who most recently served as regional president of its Asia Pacific region, is effective as of June 1.

Reddington succeeds Bert Nappier, who served as regional president and chief executive since June 2018. Nappier will assume the role of executive vice president, treasurer, tax, and corporate development for FedEx Corp., based in Memphis, Tennessee.

In her new role, 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”.

“Europe presents tremendous opportunities for FedEx and whilst I say goodbye to my APAC colleagues with a heavy heart, I’m excited to be joining this talented team,” 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 joined FedEx Express in 1997 as an operations research adviser in Hong Kong. She then rose through the ranks in Asia Pacific before being appointed regional president in 2015.
