UPS appoints Francisco Conejo as new Country Manager for UPS Italy

UPS has announced the appointment of Francisco (Paco) Conejo as the new Country Manager for UPS Italy. He will take over from Britta Weber. As country manager for UPS Italy, Conejo will oversee UPS’s operations, business development, and strategy in the country whose export accounts for more than 30% of the GDP, more than half of which is generated by SMEs1.

“I am thrilled to return to work in Italy, a key market for UPS, and to carry on the team’s excellent work,” Conejo said. “I will be focused on driving small and medium-sized business (SMB) growth, boosting cross-border exports for our customers, and helping to create an affirmative and supportive working environment for all UPSers.”

Conejo knows Italy well, having been appointed Division Manager for Southern Italy in 2006, before returning to Spain where he held the same position before becoming Country Operations Manager for Iberia.

In his most recent role as OSP & Transportation Director for East Europe, he was part of the team which oversaw the establishment of East Europe’s new 9,000m2 operational headquarters in Prague, which represents UPS’s largest-ever investment in the Czech Republic with a sortation capacity of 5,000 packages per hour. Conejo also helped integrate two new historic flight paths from UPS’s European hub in Cologne to Istanbul and Tel Aviv.

Most recently, he has played a leading role in the delivery of humanitarian supplies to help those affected by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.

Conejo started his career at UPS in 1984 as a package handler in Madrid. He then took up a driver position before taking on several roles of greater responsibility across Transportation, Industrial Engineering, Sales, Customer Service, and Operations.
