UPS has announced Scott A. Price will join the company as Chief Transformation Officer, effective December 11, 2017.

The UPS Chief Transformation Officer role is a newly created position and Price is charged with driving and facilitating organizational change that will help UPS to both identify and execute opportunities for profitable growth within its existing business units and in yet-untapped markets and product segments.  The company is establishing this role to accelerate its transformation by identifying strategies to prioritize resources and direct investment for the greatest strategic benefit and long-term shareholder return.  Early in 2017, the company announced plans for extensive upgrades to its Smart Global Logistics Network, enhancing capacity and efficiency through the use of state-of-the-art processes, information technology and automation.

“Scott has a proven track record of driving and facilitating organizational change at large complex multinational corporations where growth beyond the mature core business was imperative for the company to remain on a path to long-term success,” said Abney.  “His diverse career experience will be invaluable as he helps UPS leaders move quickly with the implementation of highly-concentrated growth projects as well as related transformation.”
