From Business Travel News:

American Express Global Commercial Services president Susan Sobbott will leave the company on Feb. 1. Amex Global Corporate Services president Steve Squeri, who will become Amex chairman and CEO on Feb. 1, issued an internal memo saying Sobbott is interested in being a CEO and therefore will explore opportunities outside Amex.

Squeri is replacing current Amex president and CEO Ken Chenault, who also is leaving the company in February.

Amex has not named a successor for Sobbott, who has worked for Amex for 27 years and became president of GCS, the division which houses corporate cards, in 2014, when Amex separated its travel business from its card business. She replaced Bill Glenn, who became president & CEO of American Express Global Business Travel.

During her time as president of GCS, Sobbott integrated five commercial businesses, according to Amex. To improve the customer experience for large and global accounts, she launched several products and revamped existing ones. She improved relations with small and midsize enterprises, according to Amex.
