As it moves toward finalizing its purchase of TD Ameritrade, Charles Schwab is adding two new board members — Marianne C. Brown and Gerri K. Martin-Flickinger. The move will raise the number of women on its board to four out of 15 total members as of Aug. 1.
Brown currently is on the board of Akamai Technologies, Northrop Grumman and VMware. She was chief operating officer of Fidelity National Information Services’ global financial solutions group from 2015 to 2019.
Martin-Flickinger is chief technology officer and an executive vice president at Starbucks. Earlier, she was the chief information officer of Adobe, VeriSign, Network Associates and McAfee Associates.
Other women on Schwab’s board are Joan Dea, founder of Beckwith Investments and previously with BMO Financial Group and Boston Consulting Group; and Paula Sneed, chairman and CEO of the consultancy Phelps Prescott Group and a former executive of Kraft Foods.
