Twilio (NYSE:TWLO), a leading customer engagement platform known for enabling real-time, personalized interactions for top brands, today announced a significant transition within its board of directors.

Byron Deeter, a prominent figure who has been part of Twilio's board since 2010, will not seek reelection and is set to retire from the board ahead of the 2024 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

Following his retirement, the board will reduce its size to nine directors.

Khozema Shipchandler, Twilio's CEO, expressed the company's deep gratitude towards Deeter for his fourteen years of service. 

In addition to announcing Deeter's retirement, Twilio disclosed plans to propose the declassification of its board at the upcoming annual meeting.

Approval from shareholders would mean that starting from the 2025 annual meeting, board directors will be elected on an annual basis.
