Douglas Tulino has been appointed US Postal Service Deputy Postmaster General effective immediately. He retains his role as Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO), an appointment he took up in November.
Tulino is now part of the Postal Service Board of Governors and is to help Postmaster General Louis DeJoy with the 10 year strategic plan Delivering for America.
In post he is to work on the US Postal Services labour relations, culture, talent and leadership development to ensure they fit in with the strategic plan. He is also to work with stakeholder outreach. “As we have been sharing our vision for a more vibrant U.S. Postal Service, Doug has been a key player, providing thoughtful leadership as we have worked collaboratively with our stakeholders to advance our plans for growth, high performance, and financial sustainability,” DeJoy said.
“His capacity for listening and problem-solving, as well as his deep knowledge of the opportunities and challenges before us, have earned him the trust of many. Now as deputy postmaster general and CHRO, he will play a pivotal role in ensuring the Postal Service has the culture, talent and stability necessary to become the high-performing service organisation it aspires to be.”
Prior to his appointments, Tulino was Vice President, Labour Relations at the US Postal Service for 15 years. He started his career as a management associate at the postal operator in 1980 in Chicago.
