Arnold Wellman Named to Board of Trustees of the Annie E. Casey Foundation

BALTIMORE – Arnold Wellman, former president of Global Public Affairs for UPS, has been named a trustee of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the largest private charitable organization in the country that focuses exclusively on improving the lives of children and families. The announcement was made last month by Michael L. Eskew, chairman of the board of trustees of the Casey Foundation and the retired chairman and chief executive officer of UPS.

Wellman guided UPS’s worldwide public affairs operations from 1992 until his retirement on April 1, 2012. As president of Global Public Affairs, he was responsible for all worldwide government affairs activities across 220 countries and territories. His career at UPS spanned 38 years, beginning with six years in the northeast hub operations, one year in Human Resources and Customer Service in New Jersey, and two years as manager of package operations for the Virginia-Maryland area.

“Arnold Wellman is an exceptional leader and will be an enormous asset to the board of trustees,” Eskew said. “His leadership and skill made him one
of the most effective public affairs managers in corporate America. He was a member of the UPS Corporate Sustainability Committee, and he brings a deep understanding of the Foundation’s mission, grant making and direct service activities across the country.”

“I also join the entire board’s enthusiastic endorsement of our newest member,” said Patrick T. McCarthy, a trustee and the Foundation's president/CEO. “Wellman’s knowledge and experience in the business and community sectors will help us continue to build better outcomes for children and families across the country.”

Wellman serves on the board of directors of the National Bureau of Asian Research, the United States Council for International Business, the Committee for Hispanic Children & Families and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy Board. He also served three terms (1977-82) as a state legislator from Connecticut’s 76th assembly district.
