U.S. Xpress adds to Board of Directors 08 July 2020

Previously Director of Cyber for the US Army

U.S. Xpress Enterprises, Inc. has elected Jennifer ‘Jen Buckner, Senior Vice President of Mastercard’s technology risk management team, to its seven-member board of directors. She brings not only a diversity of thought from outside the trucking industry but also strengthens connections with the veteran community and military credentialing efforts. The Company also looks forward to leveraging her expertise in cybersecurity, which is a major concern and priority for businesses across the world.

Buckner’s extensive career in cybersecurity began in the military, where she recently retired as a US Army Brigadier General. During her 30 years of service, Buckner held numerous intelligence and leadership roles, including deployments to Iraq and command in combat. In her last position as Director of Cyber for the US Army, Buckner shaped governance and oversight of cyber capabilities, and championed emerging technologies to detect and disrupt serious cyber threats.

Buckner joined Mastercard in 2019 to lead its global Security Governance, Risk, and Compliance team and now supports its new Technology Risk Management organisation as Senior Vice President of Governance, Framework, and Standards.

U.S. Xpress Enterprises, Inc. is the nation’s fifth largest asset-based truckload carrier by revenue, providing services primarily throughout the US.
