Becoming GC at United Parcel Service, Inc., might mean a great stock package and fascinating work. But it doesn’t mean you get to ship things for free. In late January, Teri McClure used UPS to mail a deposit for a vacation rental in sunny Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. McClure was happy with the service, but she didn’t get a break on the cost of sending it. “Everybody from the CEO on down has to pay,” she says. McClure, 42, just moved up that ladder. In December she was promoted to senior vice president of legal, general counsel, and corporate secretary for UPS, the world’s largest package delivery company. She replaced Allen Hill, who became senior vice president of human resources. Before joining UPS, McClure practiced labor and employment law in Atlanta. From 1991 to 1993, while at Smith, Currie & Hancock, she worked on UPS � related matters. Partner John Skinner (now at Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart) told her about a job opening at the company. “He said that if he was ten years younger, he would take the job and buy as much stock as possible,” McClure says. “Instead, he wanted to know if I would be interested.” She joined the UPS legal department as employment counsel in 1995. McClure, who received a marketing and economics degree from Washington University in St. Louis, was able to put her business training to use in 2003, when the company made her a district manager for central Florida. Working out of Orlando, McClure ran all package delivery operations and supervised 4,000 employees for a year. “It was a developmental opportunity for me,” McClure says. “And it was a first for the company. All the other district managers grew up in the operations side of the business.” In 2005 McClure was brought back into the legal department to head up compliance. Now, as GC, she’ll also join the UPS management committee. Maybe at the next meeting they can vote to give themselves free mailing privileges.
