UPS Makes Two Key M.E. Appointments
Logistics giant UPS has appointed Jean-Francois Condamine as President of Growth and Emerging Markets and Rami Suleiman as President of India, Southeast Asia, Middle East and Africa (ISMEA) in a recent move.
The move symbolises renewed focus on the Middle east region.
UPS international President Nando Cesarone said: “I am pleased to expand Jean-Francois Condamine’s responsibilities to continue generating performance gains and helping UPS advance an expansion strategy based on helping customers meet their local, regional and global ambitions.
“His unique ability to manage distinct market challenges and opportunities across several markets, as well as his depth of knowledge regarding business culture across those markets are vital for helping our customers grow across borders with our smart global logistics network.
“High growth and emerging markets offer businesses great opportunities.”
UPS moves approximately 3% of the world’s GDP on a daily basis and is focussing much of its efforts on emerging and growing markets, such as those in the Middle East region.
Condamine added: “UPS is in an excellent position to seize a host of opportunities presented as emerging markets continue to grow. I look forward to building on the great work the team has put in to get us where we are today.
“Time matters in this fast-moving market which is why we see a need to continuously improve speed to market with better time in transit between growing trade lanes that connect the US, the Middle East, and China.
“Widely, we will continue helping customers increase their reach by enhancing our smart global logistics network.”
Rami Suleiman has been named President of ISMEA specifically to oversee market opportunities in the Middle East.
Suleiman said: “The ISMEA district holds immense importance in UPS’s transformation growth strategy and is a market where the company is helping customers realise important growth opportunities.
“I am honoured by the opportunity provided in a role that will continue connecting businesses to UPS’s ever-evolving smart global logistics network. The markets in this part of the world are poised for further growth across borders – this is certainly helped with the adoption of business-friendly policies which we continue to see.”
