Donahoe names new Postal Service leadership team

Patrick Donahoe, the US Postal Service's new postmaster general, announced his scaled-down leadership team this week, saying the group will work with him to create a more profitable and nimble USPS.

He reduced the number of senior officers, and his direct reports, to seven. Former Postmaster General Jack Potter had nine senior officers on his executive committee.

Donahoe did not name a new deputy postmaster general to succeed him. He became postmaster general on December 3.

Donahoe retained Paul Vogel as president and chief marketing and sales officer; Joseph Corbett as CFO;  Tony Vegliante as chief human resources officer; and Mary Anne Gibbons as general counsel.

He named Megan Brennan, most recently the eastern area VP, the USPS' new COO, and appointed Ellis Burgoyne, VP of the southwest area, its CIO. Both will also serve as members of the executive committee.

“This team is uniquely qualified and capable of leading the Postal Service through a time of great challenges and opportunities,” Donahoe said, in a statement. “I have great confidence in their ability to work together to drive beneficial change to improve our competitive posture.”

“We continue to work with the board of governors to find the best candidate for the position of deputy postmaster general,” said Joanne Veto, senior manager of PR and promotional communications at the USPS. “As such, there is no deadline for the search to be completed.”
