Path CFO Joins FedEx Board of Directors

By Andy Meek

The chief financial officer of the social network Path Inc. has joined the board of directors at FedEx Corp.

Path CFO Kimberly Jabal also has been appointed as a member of FedEx’s information technology oversight committee, the package delivery giant announced Monday.

Path has functionalities similar to Facebook – the adding of friends, posting of status updates, and a layout built around a stream of updates – but it’s also a kind of anti-Facebook. Path purposely limits the number of connections its users can have – in theory, fostering closer bonds between users of the service.

Prior to joining Path earlier this year, Jabal worked at Lytro Inc., an early-stage company building the world’s first consumer lightfield camera. There, she was vice president of finance.

Jabal also served in multiple roles at Google from 2003 to 2011, including as director of investor relations.

FedEx chairman, president and CEO Frederick W. Smith said Jabal brings “extensive knowledge of information technology, social media, finance and operations” to FedEx.
