Blucora appoints two new independent directors

Blucora, Inc., a Bellevue-based provider of technology-enabled financial solutions to consumers, small businesses and tax professionals, today announced that it has appointed William L. Atwell and H. McIntyre “Mac” Gardner to its Board of Directors, effective March 1, at which time Mr. Atwell will also become Chairman of the Board.

These appointments are designed to evolve the Blucora Board to support its previously announced transition to a technology enabled financial solutions company. These additions follow the decisions by John E. Cunningham IV, Blucora’s Chairman, and David H.S. Chung to retire from the Board.

Mr. Atwell has more than 40 years of financial services experience from his executive positions at CIGNA, The Charles Schwab Corporation and Citigroup. He most recently served as President of CIGNA’s International business before retiring in 2012 to run his own financial services consulting firm, Atwell Partners LLC.

Mr. Gardner brings decades of leadership and operating experience in the wealth and consumer products industries, having most recently served as the Head of Americas Region and Global Bank Group, Global Private Client at Merrill Lynch.

Following today’s appointments, the Blucora Board will be comprised of nine directors, eight of whom are independent, and four of whom joined the Board within the last three years.
