(NYSE: FDX), announces that Jorge Luis Torres Aguilar has been appointed Vice President of Operations effective today, replacing Roby Brown. This appointment marks a historic moment in the organization, as Torres becomes the first Mexican to lead a team of more than 5,000 people and FedEx operations throughout the country.
From this position, Jorge Torres will continue the effort to integrate MultiPack into the FedEx network, a process which started 11 months ago with the acquisition of the company.

Jorge has a professional history of 21 years with FedEx Express Mexico, where he started as customer service agent in 1991.

Before becoming Vice President of Operations, Torres was appointed Director of Administration and Engineering.
A native of León, Guanajuato, Jorge received his bachelor’s degree in Communications from the Universidad del Valle de México. He also holds a master’s degree in Quality Assurance from the Universidad La Salle and the OneMBA degree from the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education’s EGADE Business School.
While welcoming Torres, FedEx Express Mexico also recognizes the work performed by Roby Brown, who led the Mexican business for nine years and whose vision of the importance of the domestic market was key for the corporation’s expansion plans in the country.
