Noel Massie Named President of UPS Central California District

Los Angeles, June 28, 2010

Noel Massie, a 33-year UPS veteran, has assumed command as president of the company's new and expanded Central California District, directing small package operations in an area that covers the state's mid-section.

The Central California District is one of 20 new Districts dividing the United States activated earlier this year. It includes the cities of Fresno, Bakersfield, Salinas and Los Angeles and features a package-delivery operation with some 10,000 employees.

Massie most recently served as the manager of UPS's Southeast California District, which has been consolidated into the new District. He began his UPS career in 1977 as a package handler in the East Bay District. He was promoted to hub manager in 1984 and held positions in Industrial Engineering and operations prior to being named hub division manager in 1988. After several assignments in operations, Noel was named the Metro Philadelphia District operations manager in 1995. He was promoted to Metro Chicago District manager in 1997 and became Virginia District manager in 2003.

UPS announced in January it was going to streamline its domestic management structure to improve overall performance by reducing the number of U.S. Districts from 46 to 20. Thanks to today's technology and the management strengths of its people, a District office now can oversee a much larger geographic area than in years' past.

As part of the realignment, UPS also is expanding its outreach to customers by strengthening local sales and marketing efforts. No package handling facilities have been affected by the consolidation of management offices, nor have any UPS drivers or package handlers.
