Citrix Elects Moira A. Kilcoyne to Its Board of Directors

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — June 11, 2018 — Citrix Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CTXS) today announced the election of Moira A. Kilcoyne, to its board of directors, effective June 6, 2018.

“We are fortunate to have Moira join the Citrix board,” said David Henshall, president and chief executive officer of Citrix. “Moira brings extensive experience in the financial services industry — both domestic and international — to the board, having served in multiple technology and operational executive positions with Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch and most recently as a board member for UK-based Quilter PLC.”

Kilcoyne began her career at IBM, where she served in multiple technical roles, before moving on to Morgan Stanley. During her 27-year tenure at Morgan Stanley, she held various roles including chief operating officer of the global technology and operations group; company CIO, managing technology for finance, market and credit risk, legal and compliance; international CIO based in London, responsible for Europe and Asia; CIO for Wealth and Investment Management; and Global Co-CIO.

Kilcoyne also played a critical role as a lead integration executive in the Morgan Stanley acquisition of Smith Barney, overseeing the highly complex platform transformation for both companies.

Kilcoyne will join the Audit Committee of the Citrix board and qualifies as an independent director.

About Moira A. Kilcoyne

Kilcoyne, 56, joined Morgan Stanley in 1989 where she held various roles of increasing responsibility. In 2007, she left Morgan Stanley for Merrill Lynch but was recruited back to Morgan Stanley where she became the COO of Global Operations, Technology and Data. Her performance in numerous CIO roles, as well as the Wealth platform integration, eventually led to her serving as Global Co-CIO.

She joined Morgan Stanley after 7 years at IBM where she served in multiple technical roles as a developer and client solution engineer.

Today, Kilcoyne consults with financial and technology firms on complex change programs and multi-year strategic planning projects, serves on the board of Quilter PLC and is a Trustee of Manhattan College.
