GREENFIELD, Ind.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Elanco Animal Health (NYSE: ELAN) today announced the appointment of Art
A. Garcia, recently retired executive vice president and chief financial
officer of Ryder System Inc., to the Board of Directors. The board was
established in September 2018 when Elanco became a publicly traded
company following its separation from Eli Lilly and Company.

Art is a great addition to the talent and depth of experience we’ve had
the good fortune to attract to the Elanco board,” said Jeff Simmons,
president and chief executive officer of Elanco. “He brings a wealth of
strategic, financial and technical expertise, as well as a strong focus
on growth. I look forward to working with Art as we execute our
Innovation, Portfolio and Productivity (IPP) strategic plan to fuel our
growth and ultimately deliver shareholder value.”

Garcia, a certified public accountant, began his career with Coopers &
Lybrand before joining Ryder, the $8 billion Miami-based provider of
fleet management, supply chain management and logistic solutions. While
at Ryder, Garcia held several positions of increasing responsibility,
including group director accounting services, as well as senior vice
president and corporate controller before his appointment as CFO in
2010. In addition to his responsibilities as CFO, Garcia oversaw
corporate strategy and development, and led the reengineering of the
company’s finance function to drive increased efficiencies. Garcia also
was a key member of the Ryder executive team that established a new
business model and implemented strategies to revitalize growth and
improve profitability.

Garcia graduated Magna Cum Laude from Florida State University with a
bachelor’s degree in accounting. He also sits on the board of ABM
