Subramaniam will be receiving the 2023 Pinnacle Award — the highest honor in Business Award, instituted by the Asian American Business Development Center (AABDC) at Cipriani Wall Street on September 21.
“Our Outstanding 50 Business Committee carefully considers whom to add to our roster of distinguished Pinnacle Award winners, who serve to inspire the Asian American professional community as living role models and examples of excellence in leadership,” said John Wang, President and Founder of AABDC.
“Raj Subramaniam of FedEx certainly meets and exceeds our criteria, and he has earned our admiration and appreciation for helming one of the most critical segments of the economy — the logistics and supply chains that keep our lives and businesses humming,” Wang added.
The Pinnacle Award is presented to those who have reached the acme of their professional career and is widely acknowledged as a leader in their industry.

With more than 30 years of industry experience at FedEx, Subramaniam’s international leadership experience, keen business insights, and focus on globalization have contributed to the success of FedEx and provided a blueprint as the company revolutionizes the transportation and logistics industry, as per the release.
