British entrepreneur Martha Lane Fox joins the board of Twitter
Twitter is shaking things up with its board, having announced the inclusion of two new members: PepsiCo CFO Hugh Johnston and British tech businesswoman Martha Lane Fox.
Fox is the co-founder of Lastminute.com and a cross-bench member of the House of Lords. She will be the second woman to join Twitter’s board, which has been criticised in the past for its lack of diversity.
Johnston and Fox replace two outgoing board members, ex-News Corp COO Peter Chernin and investor Peter Currie.
