The last company in the S&P 500 that was all-male has finally added a female to its board. The company, Copart, is a used car seller.
The index’s last company to add a female to the board named its CFO of a real estate investment firm Diane Morefield the newest member to its board of directors.
Morefield, 61, is the chief financial officer of real estate investment firm CyrusOne and served as a real estate banker with Barclays Bank earlier in her career.
(Editorial Comment) Leave it to a used car salesman to stay all-male until the final hour. Copart makes its way into the 21st century with this move, only about 20 years late.
