The Global Leader for Financial Dignity

Joseph Ruiz
Director, UPS Humanitarian Relief Program
UPS Foundation

HOPE Coalition America Advisory Board Member Since: January 2014

I coordinate UPS logistics and financial support that helps the humanitarian community better prepare and respond to natural disasters. I oversee logistical, financial and in-kind support for UPS humanitarian relief efforts. This includes UPS’s Logistics Emergency Team (LET) loaned executive program with the World Food Programme (WFP) as part of the United Nations Global Logistics Cluster and our recently launched Logistics Action Team (LAT) initiative working with local Red Cross Chapters. With both programs, we deploy UPS logistics responders to support natural disaster relief efforts led by WFP and the Red Cross.

I also support the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Disaster Assistance and Recovery Working Group for the Business Civic Leadership Center. On weekends, you’ll find me at a ball field where I coach youth baseball.
