Robinson succeeds Ron Chang, who has accepted an assignment in Corporate Strategy reporting to Alan Gershenhorn, Chief Commercial Officer.
“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,” said Kate Gutmann, Chief Sales and Solutions Officer. “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 U.S. 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, Mark served in the United States 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.”
Robinson won the 2009 Risk & Insurance Magazine Risk Innovator Award and currently serves as president for the Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia and is a board observer for Kabbage®.
