Patrick Pichette Named Chairman of Twitter’s Board of Directors

Omid Kordestani steps down as executive chairman but remains on the board


Changes continued on Twitter’s board of directors in the wake of pressure from investors Elliott Management and Silver Lake earlier this year, and this time, the change is at the very top.

Patrick Pichette—a member of the social network’s board of directors since December 2017 and its lead independent director since December 2018—was named chairman.

Twitter executive chairman Omid Kordestani, a board member since October 2015, will remain on the board as a non-employee director but step down as executive chairman.
