Title: Senior VP-global product marketing
Company: FedEx Corporate Services Inc., Memphis, Tenn.
Credentials: Tom Hanks may take home an Oscar for his role as a FedEx manager in "Cast Away," but 23-year company veteran Laurie Tucker deserves accolades for leading FedEx’s marketing efforts. Tucker is responsible for product development and management of new customer technology services, including FedEx Ship Manager systems and FedEx.com. Tucker learned early on that e-business services were key for FedEx’s long-term success. "Now we’re offering more sophisticated, integratable services that help our direct customers achieve the same benefits with their end customers," she said.
