Mr. Witek Brings Expertise in Optimizing Cost and Realizing Efficiencies That Will Support Go-Forward Goals

Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI) (“Pitney Bowes” or the “Company”), a global shipping and mailing company that provides technology, logistics, and financial services, today announced that John Witek, who was most recently Head of Global Business Services, has been appointed interim Chief Financial Officer, effective March 19, 2024. Mr. Witek’s appointment follows the departure of Ana Maria Chadwick, who is leaving to assume a new role with another organization. Ms. Chadwick has agreed to remain at the Company as an advisor until April 21, 2024 to ensure a seamless transition.

The Company has initiated a formal search process with recruitment firm Crist Kolder Associates for Ms. Chadwick’s permanent replacement. The Company will consider candidates with experience in areas that include business transformation, capital allocation and efficiency, cost containment, debt management and reduction, strategic restructurings, and transactions.

As Head of Global Business Services, Mr. Witek focused on driving efficiency and transformation throughout the company. Prior to that, he was the Chief Financial Officer of the Company’s SendTech segment from 2019 through 2022 where he brought an intense focus on disciplined capital management and strategic investments in growth adjacencies. Given his integral role in the repositioning of SendTech while Jason Dies, current interim Chief Executive Officer, was overseeing the segment, Mr. Witek brings the experience and understanding of the business needed to advance the Company’s strategic initiatives and also to provide stability and support in the coming quarters.

Mr. Dies commented:

“Based on his recent successes in Global Business Services and SendTech, John is the ideal person to step into the interim Chief Financial Officer position. He understands the importance of efficiency and knows how to put a business on a tangible path to consistent profitability. I have every confidence that we will benefit from John in this role as the Company explores new opportunities for capital and operational efficiency. I also thank Ana for her years of service and wish her the best in her future pursuits.”

Additional details will be filed on a Form 8-K with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
