The U.S. Postal Service today confirmed that Jack Potter, chief operating officer at the USPS, will replace William Henderson as postmaster general.


Henderson is scheduled to retire at the end of this month.


Potter is a 23-year postal veteran and has been in his current position since Oct. 12. He has earned the praise of the mailing community for his knowledge of postal operations and his experience in labor relations.


Before becoming COO, Potter was senior vice president of labor relations at the USPS.


Potter will take over as postmaster general on June 1. Postal community sources in Washington predicted Potter's appointment last week.


Henderson, who announced in January that he would retire, has been postmaster since May 1998.
