"I am very excited about leading the UPS Thailand team and the role we can play in supporting our customers to remain competitive by leveraging our comprehensive logistics expertise, extensive global network, and in-depth understanding across key industries."

With over two decades of multi-disciplinary experience in the United States and Asia Pacific, Reed brings expertise that spans strategic planning, supply chain management, new product development and launches, international marketing, sales enablement, strategic partnerships and operations management in both developed and emerging markets. He has held multiple leadership positions that have helped UPS expand its service footprint and capabilities across diverse markets around the world.
