Monica Lozano is headed to the boardroom…
Apple has announced that the 64-year-old Mexican-American longtime newspaper editor and CEO of College Futures Foundation has been elected to its board, which will expand to eight directors.
Previously, Lozano spent 30 years in media as editor and publisher of La Opinión, the largest Spanish-language newspaper in the U.S., helping shine a light on issues from infant mortality to the AIDS epidemic. She went on to become chairman and CEO of La Opinión’s parent company, ImpreMedia. She serves on the boards of Target and Bank of America.
The company said that of its eight nominees for election to the board, three self-identify as women, and four self-identify as individuals from underrepresented communities (Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identifies as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender).
Shareholders will vote on the director slate and other issues at Apple’s annual meeting, which it set for February 23.
