UPS, a global leader in logistics, has appointed Mark Vale as its president of growth and emerging markets.

Jim Barber, president of UPS International, said: “Vale brings the global insight, experience and leadership that will help lead UPS to its next phases of expansion.”

“The World Bank forecasts suggest emerging markets and developing economies are poised for accelerated growth of 4.2 per cent in 2017, compared to global growth estimates of 2.3 per cent,” he added.

“Connecting customers to economic opportunities requires a network of logistics and supply chain experts. We look forward to him helping align our company’s global capabilities to meet customers’ needs,” Barber concluded.
