Carol ToméUnited Parcel Service
The corporate notion that “UPS is a company with a proud past and an even brighter future” couldn’t be truer with the appointment of Carol Tomé as the new CEO. Tomé is the 12th CEO in the 113-year history of the company and a proud member of the UPS board since 2003. Prior to her appointment at UPS, Tomé served as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of The Home Depot, Inc. Tomé’s reputation as an inspiring, value-based leader with a strong background in finance is the foundation of her success in what is considered a primarily male- dominated industry. In addition to her roles as CEO, Tomé also serves as a trustee or board member for a number of organizations including Grady Hospital, the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies, and the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
