This month, new Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan took the reins from retiring Patrick R. Donahoe as head of the USPS. She is the 74th Postmaster General, and first female Postmaster General, in our nation’s history.
Brennan started her postal career as a letter carrier in 1986, in Lancaster, PA. In her last role as Chief Operations Officer, she initiated an expansion of package delivery to Sundays, pushed for improved tracking of packages, and worked out a delivery deal with Amazon. Clearly, she sees a role for the USPS in the e-commerce economy. Among Brennan’s plans for the future of the Postal Service is a USPS mobile app that will allow users to buy stamps, track packages, and generate shipping labels.
We congratulate Postmaster General Brennan for earning her way to the top spot in the USPS organization and wish her a successful tenure as leader of the largest postal service in the world.
