UPS has announced the appointment of Romina Lorenzo as the new country manager of the company in Spain and Portugal, where she will be responsible for operations and business development and strategy.
“Romina’s career and profile will further strengthen UPS’s position in the logistics and transportation sector in Spain and Portugal,” said Daniel Carrera, president of UPS Europe.“We continue to invest in our European network to help small and medium enterprises to grow through exports and are delighted to be able to count on Romina’s strategic vision to move forward in achieving this goal in the Spanish and Portuguese markets.”
Romina, of Argentine origin, assumes this new position after more than 16 years of experience at UPS, working in the area of finance and accounting in European cities such as Brussels or Milan. Her most recent position so far has been Director of Finance and Accounting at UPS Italy.
“It is an honor to assume this position and I’m excited to contribute to helping our clients develop their business and face the challenge of exporting, which constitutes an important engine of economic growth in Spain and Portugal”, said Lorenzo. “I am also excited to continue to drive forward the agenda for promoting inclusivity and female empowerment within the transport and logistics sector,” she stated.
UPS is committed to female leadership both within the organization, with 46% of women occupying a management position and a third in senior management, as well as outside supporting a diversity and inclusion program and women entrepreneurs.
The new country manager of UPS in Spain and Portugal will lead initiatives aligned with this objective, such as the “Exporting Women” program that UPS will soon launch in Spain in order to help women entrepreneurs, manufacturers and cooperative associations to grow their businesses and expand to new and profitable markets.
