Nancy Koeper Named President of UPS Northwest DistrictSEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nancy Koeper, a 24-year UPS veteran, has assumed command as president of the company's new and expanded Northwest District, directing small package operations in an area that covers all or parts of seven states.
The Northwest District is one of 20 new Districts dividing the United States activated earlier this year. It includes all of Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Alaska, Washington, Oregon and a tiny sliver of northern Nevada and features a package-delivery operation with some 11,000 employees.
Koeper most recently served as the manager of UPS's Red River District. She began her UPS career in 1986 as a delivery driver in New Jersey and after being promoted into management, moved through a series of jobs of increasing responsibility in operations, industrial engineering and marketing and sales while also earning an MBA from Fairleigh Dickinson University. She assumed command of the Red River District in Oklahoma City in 2006.
UPS announced in January it was going to streamline its domestic management structure to improve overall performance by reducing the number of U.S. Districts from 46 to 20. Thanks to today's technology and the management strengths of its people, a District office now can oversee a much larger geographic area than in years' past.
As part of the realignment, UPS also is expanding its outreach to customers by strengthening local sales and marketing efforts. No package handling facilities have been affected by the consolidation of management offices, nor have any UPS drivers or package handlers.
