American Express CFO Dan Henry Stepping Down

After 23 years with American Express (NYSE: AXP  ) , CFO Dan Henry is resigning from the company, but will stay on to assist in the hiring and transition processes, CEO Kenneth Chenault announced in a letter today.

According to Chenault, discussions with Henry have been ongoing "over the last few months" to ensure today's announcement was made at "the right time."
