Management & Directors
Ronald W. Tysoe
Ronald W. Tysoe was elected a Director of Cintas in 2008. He is the Chairman of the Audit Committee. He served as Vice Chairman of Federated Department Stores, Inc. (now known as Macy's Inc.), a clothing and home furnishings company, from April 1990 to October 2006. Mr. Tysoe previously served as a director of Taubman Centers, Inc., J. C. Penney Company, Inc., Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Pzena Investment Management Inc., and Scripps Networks Interactive, Inc. The Board believes that Mr. Tysoe's prior service as a Vice Chairman of another publicly-traded company, his independent director status and the fact that he is an "audit committee financial expert" under SEC guidelines, given his understanding of accounting and financial reporting, disclosures and controls, make his Board service extremely beneficial to Cintas.
