Longtime UPS technology chief to retire - Supply Chain Drive

Juan Perez, chief information and engineering officer, spent 32 years at UPS, embedding technology across lines of business.

Perez raised the profile of technology at UPS, weaving it into every area of the business. He pushed the evolution of the logistics company into a technology company, allowing it to recruit talent and compete with companies like Google and Apple.

"We need to continue to disrupt ourselves to remain competitive," he said, speaking at a conference in 2018. "If we don't … who will?"

CEO Carol Tomé credited Perez with the creation of the company's Advanced Technology Group, launching smart package efforts and deploying network planning tools, she said in the announcement Tuesday. Perez also boosted information security and helped modernize the company's IT.
