George Brooks, a 28-year UPS veteran, will leave his position as president of the company's central region to take the position of president of the east region, which is based in New York City. He replaces Glenn Rice, who retired this month after 34 years with UPS.
Stan Deans, who also has 28 years with the company, has been promoted to take Brooks' place as president of UPS's central region. He will be based in Chicago. Deans will move from the position of president of UPS's Illinois District, one of six in the central region.
Brooks began his career with UPS in 1983 as a package handler in Georgia. He eventually became the president of what used to be the southeast region in 2004, becoming the central region president in 2008.
Deans started working for UPS in 1983 as a package handler in Wisconsin. He was named the president of the North Jersey district in 2002 and the Europe region's district coordinator in 2005. He transferred back to the U.S. in 2008 when he took the position of president of the metro Chicago district until being promoted to his most recent position.
Rice, who retired this month, began working for UPS in 1977 as a delivery driver in Ohio. After a series of promotions, he was named president of the Alabama district in 1998. He also led the Kansas district and the Canada district before he was promoted to regional president.
