UPS has announced changes in the leadership of two of its three US regions following the retirement of its East Region president. George Brooks, a 28-year UPS veteran, will shift from his current post as president of the company's Central Region to assume command of the East Region, based in New York. He will replace Glenn Rice, who is retiring this month after more than 34 years of service. Stan Deans, also a 28-year UPS veteran, has been promoted to succeed Brooks as president of the company's Central Region, based in Chicago. Deans currently is the president of UPS's Illinois District, one of six that comprise the Central Region.
