New CIO for UPS

As reported by Post & Parcel:

Juan R. Perez is the new Chief Information Officer of UPS.

He replaces Dave Barnes, the Chief Information and Global Business Services Officer, who is retiring after 38 years with the company. Barnes will continue with UPS through to 30 June 30 to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities.

“Juan brings great experience across a broad spectrum of business, operational and customer technology areas to the CIO position,” said David Abney, UPS Chief Executive Officer. “His contributions to UPS have led to greater efficiencies in operations, enhancements to customer service and reductions in environmental impact. I am confident he will continue UPS’s long history of information systems innovation combined with deep integration in all aspects of UPS’s business.”
