US Postmaster General and CEO of the United States Postal Service (USPS) Megan J Brennan is to retire effective 31 January. She has been with the organisation for 30 years.
“Megan Brennan is a devoted public servant who has helped lead the United States Postal Service though some very challenging circumstances,” said Robert M. Duncan, Chairman of the Board of Postal Governors. “The Governors greatly appreciate her leadership and devotion to the Postal Service.”
“Having begun her career as a letter carrier more than three decades ago, Megan has a fundamental understanding of the important role this organisation plays in communities around the country and to our broader economy,” said Duncan. “She has been a strong advocate for postal employees and customers. We especially appreciate her recent leadership of the Postal Service’s efforts to make significant changes to the international mail system, and level the playing field for American businesses.”
“In the months to come, the Governors will conduct a nationwide search for the 75th Postmaster General of the United States, while continuing to work with Postmaster General Brennan through a successful holiday season and a seamless transition in leadership.”
Brennan expressed her sincere gratitude to the men and women of the United States Postal Service, “I have had the privilege to work with you over the course of my 33-year career. You embody the spirit of public service, you earn the trust of the American people every day, and you continually reinforce my reverence for this institution and my abiding belief in our mission.”
