As president of UPS International, Dan Brutto is responsible for all international package, freight forwarding and logistics businesses, as well as U.S. international package services. He is also a member of UPS’s Management Committee, which is responsible for the day–to–day management of the company.
Most recently, Brutto was president of Global Freight Forwarding for UPS, where he was responsible for air freight network management and global brokerage services. In that role, he helped integrate multiple UPS freight forwarding units that had been acquired or built by UPS into one, global air and ocean forwarding offering. The UPS model is now unique to the industry, coupling the extensive UPS network and assets with more typical freight forwarding options to create one operating system regardless of where on the globe a customer originates a shipment.
Brutto began his career with UPS in 1975 as a part time employee while attending Loyola University in Illinois. During his 34 years of UPS experience, he has held several senior management positions in operations, finance, marketing and business development.
In the 1990s, he was part of the UPS international Acquisition and Financial Integration team, where he was responsible for establishing UPS operations in 35 countries across Europe and Asia including the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia.
He then played a significant role in the expansion of UPS capabilities beyond small package, serving as vice president and general manager for North and South America for UPS Supply Chain Solutions and later as president of Global Transportation and Shared Services for the business unit.
Brutto earned undergraduate degrees in business and accounting from Loyola University, and a master of business administration degree from Keller Graduate School of Management. Brutto currently sits on the Board of Directors of the US/China Business Council.
