Pinkie Dent Mayfield has been elected to DXC Technology’s board of directors and she will serve on the Nominating/Corporate Governance Committee of the board.
“She is a seasoned leader with broad experience across numerous executive roles,” said DXC Chairman, President and CEO Mike Salvino. “The board and the management team are looking forward to working with her and benefitting from her expertise and insights as the company continues to evolve.”
Mayfield is the chief communications officer and vice president of corporate affairs at Graham Holdings Company (formerly The Washington Post Co.). She is responsible for corporate affairs, public relations, communications and strategic initiatives.
“Since August of 2020, we have appointed eight new board members to DXC, adding depth to the board’s skills in areas such as finance, IT and talent management while bringing new skills to the board in ESG, policy and communications,” said Raul Fernandez, chair of the board’s Nominating/Corporate Governance Committee.
“We have also improved the diversity of DXC’s board in a myriad of ways. With 64 percent of the board identifying as diverse, the company will continue to benefit from the broad and fresh perspectives along with the deep and abiding experience these individuals bring as directors,” Fernandez said.
Prior to joining Graham Holdings, Mayfield was a vice president and trust officer at NationsBank (now Bank of America) in the Investment Services Division. She also is a member of the board of directors of Ready Capital Corporation and the treasurer of the board of directors of the District of Columbia College Access Program and a trustee of the Philip L.
