McDonald's announced on Monday that Cathy Engelbert has been elected to join its board of directors.




The move follows the abrupt termination of CEO Steve Easterbrook in early November after an investigation into his relationship with a coworker.




"McDonald's will benefit from her fresh perspectives, strong operational experience, and broad financial expertise," said Enrique Hernandez, Jr., McDonald's chairman of the board. "Cathy's election also underscores our commitment to diversity at all levels, from the crew room to the board room."

McDonald's has elected a new member to its board of directors, following the fast-food giant's CEO shakeup in early November.
On Monday, McDonald's announced that Cathy Engelbert had joined the company's board of directors.
Engelbert became the commissioner for the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) earlier this year. She served as CEO of Deloitte from 2015 to 2019, making her the first female top executive at a "Big Four" professional service firm.
