Transport giant UPS has named Romaine Seguin, a 27-year veteran with the company, as president of the UPS Americas Region with responsibility for Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean. She is based in Miami.
Seguin was chief operating officer of the UPS Europe, Middle East and Africa Region until November, based in Brussels.
She succeeds Stephen Flowers, who has assumed a leadership position in UPS Global Freight Forwarding.
Seguin is responsible for UPS package and cargo operations in more than 50 countries and territories, and also will oversee UPS Supply Chain Solutions operations throughout Miami, Latin America and the Caribbean.
Seguin joined UPS in St. Louis, Mo., in 1983 as a part-time hub supervisor. She rose through operational and management roles in the United States and Europe. In 1994, she became controller for the air district, based in Louisville, Ky., and later moved to a senior operational role responsible for opening the first automated test wing at UPS Worldport. The wing tested much of the $2 billion in technology and equipment that UPS later used in its global air hub.
In October 2007, she moved to Europe as managing director of UPS South Europe and later, became chief operating officer, UPS Europe, Middle East and Africa.
