McDonald's announced Monday that it has elected Women's National Basketball Association Commissioner Cathy Engelbert to its board.

Her election comes after the board ousted former CEO Steve Easterbrook for having a relationship with an employee. Chris Kempczinski, who formerly served as the president of McDonald's USA, is now chief executive of the fast-food giant.

Before joining the WNBA in July 2019, Engelbert served as chief executive of Deloitte from 2015 to 2019. She was the first woman to lead a Big Four firm and is a certified public accountant licensed in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey.

"I'm proud to be joining the Board now at this important time, and I look forward to contributing to its global impact," Engelbert said in a statement.
