Fred Smith, is the founder, chairman, president, and CEO of FedEx Smith became a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity and Skull and Bones. In his college years, he was a friend of George W. Bush. Smith is a supporter of Senator John McCain's 2008 Presidential bid, and has been named McCain's National Co-Chairman of his campaign committee.
