President of Asia-Pacific Region, United Parcel Service
As the President of UPS Asia Pacific Region, Ross leads over 14,000 employees and oversees all UPS operations in the nearly 40 countries and territories, including UPS’s package delivery, freight forwarding, contract logistics and distribution services. Ross’s vision for UPS’s Asia Pacific region is based on a continued commitment to growth through providing greater access to UPS, innovation that creates value for the customer and a firm belief that empowering the right talent with the right tools will cement UPS’s position as a global logistics leader.
Like many senior UPS leadership, Ross began his career at UPS while completing his under-graduate studies as a part-time employee. Since joining the company in 1984, Ross counts a number of ground-breaking ‘firsts’ at UPS, which have contributed to successful product, portfolio and geographic expansions throughout the business. In 1996 he headed UPS’s first ever e-commerce function. This was followed by post-acquisition integration and relationship development for Mail Boxes Etc. in the UPS Europe Region, which paved the way for the company’s successful and growing retail strategy in Europe, and integrating UPS’s supply chain solutions under one marketing portfolio, positioning UPS as one of the first end-to-end global logistics integrators.
In his prior role as Vice President for Corporate Strategy, Ross led the creation and launch of a new strategic planning process, together with the development of a comprehensive global vision and strategy communications platform. A growth champion, Ross leveraged his experience with global merger and acquisition projects to oversee key initiatives including significant strategic investments in the region, and established relationships with leading Asian transportation companies.
