UPS has announced the appointment of Nando Cesarone as president for the UPS Europe Region, Ross McCullough as president for the UPS Asia Pacific Region and Cindy Miller as president of UPS Global Freight Forwarding.
“Nando and Ross have honed their leadership skills with a broad range of assignments around the world and I know they will make a significant impact as presidents of the Asia Pacific and Europe Regions,” said Jim Barber, president, UPS International. “Like many of our executives, both of them started their careers as a package loader and driver, respectively, exemplifying our focus on leadership development and succession planning.”
Cesarone, a 25-year UPS veteran, will be responsible for all UPS operations in 56 countries and territories and more than 45,000 employees. Europe is UPS’s largest non-US region, contributing approximately half of the more than US$2 billion in international package operating profit generated over 2015. Cesarone most recently served as the president for the UPS Asia Pacific Region.
A native of Toronto, Canada, Cesarone has held several key international management positions at UPS, including country manager for Austria, Hungary and Switzerland; vice president of Operations for UPS Canada; president for North-East Europe; and president, UPS Asia Pacific. While in Asia, he expanded UPS’s presence to Myanmar, a vital emerging market, and 21 additional cities in China. He oversaw accelerated intra-Asia transit times for more than 35 trade lanes connecting 41 markets and launched new products including Trade Management Services, and China to Europe rail freight.
