William G. (Bill) Margaritis, senior vice president, global communications and investor relations for FedEx, was named the 13th president of the Arthur W. Page Society this morning at the society’s annual business meeting in Chicago. Margaritis has been with FedEx since May 1997, and oversees global reputation management, investor relations, public relations, employee communications and social responsibility programs.

The society is perhaps PR’s most exclusive professional association, composed primarily of “chief communications officers (CCOs) of the world’s top multinational corporations, CEOs of the world’s largest public relations agencies,” and “academics from the leading business and communications schools.”
