SAN FRANCISCO -- June 23, 2014

McKesson Corporation (NYSE: MCK) today announced Lori A. Schechter has been
appointed executive vice president, general counsel and chief compliance
officer, replacing Laureen E. Seeger, who will leave McKesson at the end of
June to become the executive vice president and general counsel of American
Express Company. Effective immediately, Schechter will be responsible for
overseeing McKesson’s general counsel organization, which consists of the Law,
Public Affairs, Compliance and Corporate Secretarial functions for McKesson
and its subsidiaries. Schechter will also join McKesson’s executive committee.

“Lori is exceptionally qualified to lead our legal, public affairs and
compliance functions,” said John Hammergren, chairman and chief executive
officer, McKesson Corporation. “Her deep litigation expertise and proven
judgment, combined with her outstanding track record of developing and
managing complex legal organizations, make her the ideal person to lead
McKesson’s general counsel organization as we expand globally.”

Lori A. Schechter has served as associate general counsel of McKesson since
2012. Previously, she was a litigation partner at Morrison & Foerster where
she represented clients in complex litigation and investigations and served
for four years as chair of the 500-lawyer global litigation department.
Schechter was named by the National Law Journal as one of the “Top 50 Female
Litigators in the Country.” She received her B.A. from Cornell University in
1983, and her J.D. from Yale Law School in 1987.

Seeger departs McKesson after 14 years with the company, having served as
general counsel since 2006.

“Laureen has made tremendous contributions to McKesson during her tenure with
the company,” said Hammergren. “She is an outstanding lawyer and executive,
with incredible character, integrity and heart. She has consistently provided
expert legal and strategic guidance on the most important issues facing the
company, while continually strengthening McKesson’s general counsel
organization by attracting and developing world-class talent. We wish Laureen
the very best in her future with American Express.”

“I thank John, my colleagues and our business partners for an extraordinary
experience at McKesson,” Seeger stated. “I have never worked with such a
talented, committed and high-performing team of people. I have the greatest
confidence in the team that we have built over the years, and I look forward
to watching their progress as McKesson continues to expand its leadership on a
worldwide basis. After 14 years with McKesson, I am excited to begin a new
chapter of my own with one of the most admired companies in financial
services.”
