Feldmann, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Cubic Corporation. “At Cubic, we prioritize diversity and inclusion to strengthen our company culture, generate innovative ideas and in turn, best serve our employees, customers, shareholders and communities.”
“It’s even more critical now, at a time when the business world is transforming a total shift in board governance practices, that we applaud leading companies including Cubic that appreciate having business-savvy women on their boards as a competitive advantage,” said Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire, chief executive officer of 2020 Women on Boards. “Even with the positive national momentum, U.S. companies are still a long way from gender balance in the boardroom and Cubic is showing the way.”
