UPS announced today that Myron Gray has been promoted to senior vice president of U.S. operations. Formerly head of UPS regional operations in Canada and Latin America, Gray replaces Jim Winestock who is retiring after 40 years with the company.

Gray, 51, will also join the parcel carrier’s management committee, which includes the company’s 12 most senior executives, UPS says.

“Jim Winestock leaves a tremendous legacy of leadership and service excellence to our company,” says UPS chairman and CEO Scott Davis. “Under his leadership, UPS has completed the deployment of technologies that improved both customer service and internal operations, to the point that UPS has attained the highest levels of customer service in the industry.”

Gray has several years experience in industrial engineering and business development in addition to his international experience heading the Americas Region, Davis says. He was hired at UPS 30 years ago as a part-time package handler, a job he held while attending university.

After working for UPS for six years Gray became a package delivery driver and then was promoted to operations supervisor. He next worked as a package division manager for six years before he was promoted to vice president and chief operating officer of the Southeast Texas District. Three years later he was promoted to lead UPS’s Rocky Mountain District.

Grey was named president of the Southwest Region in 2002, took over the North Central Region in 2004, and then was picked to lead UPS’s Americas Region in January 2008.

Winestock, 57, has experience in finance and accounting, human resources and industrial engineering. He worked as the vice president and chief operating officer of two UPS districts and as president of two company regions before being promoted to head U.S. operations.

Winestock first came to UPS nearly 40 years ago as a part-time package loader. He next worked in several management roles for UPS in Florida and Georgia. In 1992, he became vice president and chief operating officer of the Northeast Texas District, and four years later was chosen to head the Missouri District. In 1998, he became president of the Midwest Region, and in 2000 the North Central Region. He was named senior vice president U.S. operations in 2004.
