Dillon “has 30 years of combined public company experience in global business, M&A and legal.” He currently serves on the Board of Directors of Viatris.

WWE wrote of McKenna and Dillon:

McKenna spent more than two decades as a senior leader at Disney, Universal Studios and the NFL, working across technology, digital strategy and finance. From 2012 to 2022, McKenna served as Chief Information Officer for the NFL, where she was responsible for the league’s technology strategy and served as executive sponsor of the Women’s Interactive Group. She serves on the Board of Directors of Ring Central, where she is a member of the Audit, Compensation and Nomination and Governance committees. McKenna previously served on Insperity’s board of directors from 2015 to 2018.

Dillon has over 30 years of combined public company experience in global business, M&A and legal. Dillon has served on the Viatris Board of Directors since November 2020, when Pfizer’s Upjohn division merged with Mylan to form Viatris, a global health and pharmaceutical company. She is a member of the Viatris Board’s Executive, Audit and Compliance Committees, and chair of its Governance and Nominations Committee. He previously served on the board of Mylan from 2014 to 2020.
