Iron Eagle Group, Inc. (OTCQB: IEAG) today announced that it has appointed Joseph E. Antonini to the Board of Directors.
“On behalf of Iron Eagle Group, I am honored to welcome Joseph Antonini to the Board of Directors,” stated Jason Shapiro, Co-Founder, Director, and Executive Vice President of Corporate Strategy for Iron Eagle Group. “Joe brings extensive corporate leadership to the company, including expertise in financing, negotiating complex contracts and driving growth.” In addition, Iron Eagle will benefit from Joe’s active leadership as a board member of major global companies including Chrysler, Kmart and Shell Oil. His corporate governance experience will further assist Iron Eagle on its path toward listing on a senior exchange, such as the NASDAQ or AMEX. While Chairman, President and CEO of Kmart, Joe successfully introduced Martha Stewart, purchased The Sports Authority when it was only a 10-store chain, bought OfficeMax, and acquired Borders, Inc., when it was only a 22-store chain. These were all significantly grown and eventually successfully IPO’ed.”
Joseph E. Antonini is the former Chairman, President and CEO of Kmart Corporation, where he worked for over 30 years. At Kmart, Joe rose from his humble beginnings as a management trainee, at the then S.S. Kresge Company in 1964, to Chairman of the giant retail chain in 1987. He is credited with leading Kmart into a new era by launching store renewal programs of unparalleled scope in retail history. They included expansion of the retailer's specialty store concepts, along with introduction of the Kmart Super Center, both contributors to setting new sales and profit records. In the past, Joe has been awarded key positions that include Chairman of the National Retail Federation and the National Minority Supplier Development Council. He has also served on the Board of Directors of Polaroid Corporation, Chrysler Corporation, Shell Oil Company, Ziebart International, NBD Bank (ultimately acquired and merged into Bank One and then JPMorgan Chase), Michigan Bell, Economic Club of Detroit, and as a Trustee for the National Italian American Foundation. He is also a recipient of the Horatio Alger Award. A native of West Virginia, Joe holds a Bachelor of Science degree from West Virginia University. In 1992 he was recognized by the University as its most distinguished alumni.
