Warren Kneeshaw to Retire
Mastercard Incorporated (NYSE: MA) today appointed Devin Corr as executive vice president of investor relations, effective May 1, 2023. This appointment comes as Warren Kneeshaw announced he will retire from Mastercard.
Kneeshaw joined Mastercard in 2016. Under his leadership, Mastercard’s investor relations program has been highly recognized, as he effectively managed investor interactions, including during both a CEO and CFO transition. Kneeshaw will continue to serve in an advisory capacity and work on special projects through the end of the year.
Prior to joining Mastercard, Kneeshaw held various finance and investor relations roles at Qualcomm, Textron, Nortel Networks and Procter & Gamble.
“Warren has played a key role in the continued growth of the company’s profile across the investor community over the past six-plus years,” said Sachin Mehra, chief financial officer. “His deep relationships with the investment community – and across the organization – have helped us advance our strategy and navigate a unique economic environment over the past few years.”
As executive vice president of investor relations, Corr will oversee the team responsible for cultivating relationships with the investment community. His team will continue to focus on educating and updating investors and providing management and the board with feedback on how the market views the company. Corr will work closely with several groups, including with the management committee, the corporate controller and corporate secretary, to deliver key information to a range of stakeholders.
“Devin brings a unique perspective to this role. Not only does he have a deep knowledge of our diverse business, but his tenure working on several equities’ desks will help continue to evolve our relationship with our stockholders and the broader investment community,” said Mehra.
Corr currently serves as the chief financial officer for Mastercard’s Data and Services activities. Before moving into this role, he served in a number of finance leadership positions, including support of Consumer Products and the company’s UK, Ireland, Nordic and Baltics division.
