Indianapolis, June 28, 2010
Zachary Scott, a 31-year UPS veteran, has assumed command as president of the company's new and expanded Ohio Valley District, directing small package operations in an area that covers all or parts of four states.
The Ohio Valley District is one of 20 new Districts dividing the United States activated earlier this year. It includes all of Kentucky, Indiana, and southern Illinois and southwest Ohio and features a package-delivery operation with some 13,000 employees.
Scott most recently served as the manager of UPS's Central Pennsylvania District. He began his UPS career in 1979 as a delivery driver in Northern New Jersey and after being promoted into management, moved through a series of jobs of increasing responsibility before being named manager of the Gulf South District in Louisiana in 2000.
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.
