Debra Lee Stepped Down From Twitter’s Board of Directors – Adweek

Longtime BET Networks chairman and CEO Debra Lee joined Twitter’s board of directors in May 2016, becoming the first African American to hold a seat. Lee gave up that seat Monday, and she will join telecommunications giant AT&T’s board of directors.

Twitter revealed Lee’s exit from its board in a Form 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and Lee said in a statement included with that filing, “Twitter is a terrific company with a clear mission and strong leadership team. I believe Twitter has a bright future, and I wish (CEO Jack Dorsey) and the entire company continued success.”

Lee expressed similar sentiments in a tweet: “I’ve had the pleasure of serving on the @Twitter board for over three years. Thank you to @jack and the team who work tirelessly to ensure Twitter serves the public conversation. Wishing you continued success as I take on new challenges!”

Twitter said in the Form 8-K, “Twitter and the board are grateful to Ms. Lee for her service.”

The company did not offer any further comments, but Dorsey said in a tweet, “Thank you Debra! Going to miss your presence and voice.”

Lee left the cable programmer in May 2018. She had been with BET since 1986.
