Wilfredo ‘Wil’ Ramos
UPS - Singapore
Wilfredo ‘Wil’ Ramos will succeed Michelle Ho as Asia Pacific president at UPS.
Ho is retiring after more than 30 years of service at the global shipping courier.
Ramos will lead all aspects of UPS's small package business through the company’s Asia Pacific network, as well as oversee UPS's global brokerage, customer solutions and global revenue operations.
Ramos returns to Asia after three years in the Americas, first as president of UPS Latin America, then as president of Americas, global brokerage, customer solutions and global revenue operations.
"I began my journey with UPS in Latin America, but I grew up in Asia," says Ramos, who previously spent six years at the company's regional headquarters in Singapore where he held leadership positions in finance and strategy.
"While trade in the region is experiencing some headwinds, we can't ignore the enormous growth potential that exists for Asian businesses of all sizes, especially in the healthcare, e-commerce and manufacturing sectors."
UPS president international, healthcare and supply chain solutions Kate Gutmann says: "Wil is an innovative and growth-oriented leader with a global mindset and a proven record of delivering business results by putting our customers and people first."
"His strong international business acumen and laser focus on service is going to be a real asset for our customers in Asia."
