SAN FRANCISCO -- June 20, 2013

McKesson Corporation (NYSE: MCK) today announced that Jeffrey C. Campbell,
executive vice president and chief financial officer, will leave the company
at the end of June to become the chief financial officer of American Express
Company. Campbell has served McKesson as CFO since 2003, playing an
instrumental role in extending the company’s leadership in healthcare services
and information technology.

“Jeff is a talented executive and we thank him for his tremendous
contributions over the past decade,” said John Hammergren, chairman and chief
executive officer, McKesson Corporation. “He has superbly guided McKesson’s
financial functions during a period of steady growth and shareholder value
creation, and he has developed a strong team of individuals who will continue
leading our finance operations during this transition. We wish Jeff the
greatest success in his future with American Express.”

Until Campbell’s permanent replacement has been named, Nigel A. Rees, vice
president and controller, will assume the role of interim chief financial
officer, effective June 28. A 12-year McKesson veteran, Rees previously served
as senior vice president of finance at Adecco, SA, a global staffing and
professional services company. He also has held senior finance leadership
roles with Tandem Computers, Inc., International Microcomputer Software, Inc.,
and Challenge Dairy Products, Inc. Rees is a CPA and began his career in
public accounting with Deloitte and Touche LLP. He holds an M.B.A. from the
University of Washington and a B.A. from Whitman College.

“My time at McKesson has been an extraordinary experience, and I am delighted
to be leaving the company in such great shape,” said Campbell. “It has been a
privilege to contribute to McKesson’s success and I believe that few
organizations are better positioned to capitalize on the opportunities ahead
in healthcare. After a decade of working with John and the team to build a
world-class finance function, I am excited to begin a new chapter with
American Express and help one of the world’s most respected financial services
firms extend its track record of performance.”
