UPS Trailblazing Executive Christine Owens Retiring After 33 Years

Stocks in this article: UPS

Christine M. Owens, who rose from a part-time position to become a top UPS (NYSE: UPS) executive, today announced she will retire after 33 years with the company. Over the course of her distinguished career, Owens served in key roles, including the first woman region president, a key operational position. She also is a member of the Management Committee, which is comprised of the top executives responsible for the profit and operating plans for the company’s worldwide operations.

Teri P. McClure, the company’s chief legal and compliance officer, will assume the additional responsibility for global communications and brand management at UPS -- one of the most trusted and recognized brands in the world.

“Throughout her career, Christine has been a leader,” said Scott Davis, UPS chairman and CEO. “Most recently, she led significant shifts in the way UPS engages with its customers, employees and stakeholders, and she introduced new social and digital platforms. Christine’s deep operational experience and her passion for the business made her counsel insightful and powerful.”

Under Owens’ leadership, UPS developed the award-winning whiteboard campaign and the company’s first global communications platform “We Love Logistics.”

“Christine was responsible for integrating the communications functions and creating a team that delivered bottom-line business results to make our brand and company stronger than ever,” Davis said.

Prior to taking her current role in 2005, Owens spent 25 years in UPS operations where she had responsibility for some of the company’s largest business divisions, including serving as president of UPS’s West and Southeast Regions. She also served as the corporate vice president of transportation, where she directed the coordination, planning, and asset utilization of UPS's global air and ground operations, the largest integrated transportation network in the world.

Owens began her career in 1979 as a part-time employee in Philadelphia during the holiday season. She spent time as a UPS driver and like many senior UPS executives went into management and continued to progress her career.
