Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School (AJMLS) is pleased to announce the appointment of Teri P. McClure, Former General Counsel and Chief Human Resources Officer, Senior Vice President of Labor Relations and Communications for United Parcel Service of America, Inc. (UPS), to the Board of Directors. Before retiring in 2019, McClure had responsibility globally for Legal and Compliance, Human Resources, Employee Communications, and Labor Relations for UPS and its 500,000 employees worldwide. She was a member of the company’s Executive Leadership Team responsible for setting strategy, profit, and operating plans for UPS worldwide operations.

Prior to McClure’s history-making 24 year career at UPS, she practiced employment and labor law at Troutman Sanders Atlanta.

As an experienced corporate director for publicly traded companies, Lennar, GMS, JetBlue, and Flour, as well as board member for privately held Board Prospects and Accelya, and board chair for the Task Force for Global Health, McClure’s leadership experience is comprehensive and diverse. She remarked about her appointment with AJMLS, “I look forward to the contributions I can bring to Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School’s growing organization and established team of leaders.” Her board expertise includes governance, strategic human capital and culture, executive compensation, strategic planning, performance management, and succession, global legal and regulatory compliance, government affairs, and crisis management.
