UPS has named Mark Robinson (left) as president of UPS Capital, a UPS subsidiary. Robinson and his staff will continue to expand UPS’s global financial and insurance services portfolio to better serve the changing needs of customers.
Robinson succeeds Ron Chang, who has accepted an assignment in corporate strategy reporting to Alan Gershenhorn, chief commercial officer.
Kate Gutmann, chief sales and solutions officer, UPS, said, “UPS Capital plays a very strategic role for UPS and our customers, providing unique solutions not typically found with other logistics, insurance and financial providers. Mark is ideally suited to lead our efforts in delivering new and enhanced capabilities that make both our customers and our company more successful.”
Robinson has more than 25 years of service, with the last 18 in UPS Capital’s supply chain insurance and trade finance areas. He led the US and international expansion for the group, developed solutions for high value shippers and more recently was vice president of global operations. Prior to joining UPS, Robinson served in the US Marine Corps.
“Under Ron Chang’s leadership, we dramatically accelerated the impact our services deliver to UPS Capital’s customers and added several new capabilities across our UPS Capital portfolio,” said Gutmann.
“Mark is similarly committed to keeping our customers at the center of our business as we help them solve their supply chain risk and working capital challenges.”
