Michell Ho is to be the new UPS China President. She succeeds Harld Peters. Ho has worked in logistics for the last 26 years, and is to spearhead the global logistics company’s small package and strategic business planning operations in China.
“UPS has had an established presence in China for more than three decades now, and our broad portfolio of services and global network puts us in a prime position to help Chinese businesses with their cross-border connectivity needs,” said Ross McCullough, President of UPS Asia Pacific.
“Michelle is no stranger to the China market, having previously served as Financial Controller for UPS China. In that role, she was instrumental in driving UPS’s transition to a wholly-owned operation. I am certain that Michelle’s extensive experience and leadership will serve UPS well as she leads more than 6,000 employees to deliver the best-in-class logistics experience for customers inside and outside of China.”
“In the course of my journey with UPS, I have witnessed the evolution of the Chinese economy, which has evolved from a low-cost production model to one that is driven by value-added manufacturing, high-tech production, and a growing consumer-base,” said Ho.
“UPS has remained focused on enabling the success of Chinese businesses at each stage of development by transforming with the shifts in the global and Chinese economies. As China continues to reform and open up, significant opportunities – and challenges – will present themselves. I am excited to be able to lead UPS’s efforts in this key market, in providing Chinese businesses – big and small – with comprehensive logistics solutions that will enable them to trade more efficiently around the world.”
Ho has held senior roles at UPS for several years. She was President for the South Asia District of UPS Asia Pacific in her last role, focusing on strategic growth for UPS express operations in 28 emerging and mature markets in the region.
