NEW YORK,  June 28, 2010 -- 

American Express has been named to the Black Enterprise 40 Best Companies for Diversity list for the fifth time. The survey measured companies against key categories including the percentage of African Americans and members of other ethnic minority groups represented in a company's total workforce, senior management and board of directors; as well as supplier diversity for total procurement dollars spent with companies owned by African Americans and members of other ethnic minority groups.
