Gleiman Joins DMA's Postal Reform Effort

Share this content:
Edward J. Gleiman, former chairman of the Postal Rate Commission, will join the Direct Marketing Association to lead efforts to pass postal reform.


Gleiman headed the PRC, the agency that oversees the U.S. Postal Service, for seven years. President Clinton nominated Gleiman as PRC chairman in February 1994. He was reappointed to a six-year term in 1998. Gleiman stepped down from the position in February.


"Ed will be a key addition in our ongoing efforts to fix the postal service and prepare it for the 21st-century economy," said H. Robert Wientzen, president/CEO of the DMA. "We are delighted that Ed has decided to help us since he is one of the leading experts on the postal service."


Gleiman will head a DMA team of industry experts in pushing for postal service reform.


"While many others are talking about postal reform, I am pleased that the DMA is committed to taking the necessary action to ensure a strong and competitive future for the postal service, beginning with reform," said Gleiman, who will lead the project from the DMA's Washington office.


Besides Gleiman's accomplishments as PRC chairman -- which have been praised throughout the business community -- he also served for 33 years in the government's legislative and executive branches.


Before he was appointed to the PRC, Gleiman was staff director at the U.S. Senate subcommittee on federal services, post office and civil service. During that four-year stint, he was responsible for law, policy and oversight of federal agencies, including the USPS and the PRC. He also served as senior policy adviser for former Sen. David Pryor, D-AR.


Gleiman also served as counsel for the House subcommittee on government information, justice and agriculture from 1977 to 1987.


Gleiman began his federal government service in 1968 as an examiner at the U.S. Patent Office. In 1971, he was assigned to the President's Price Commission-Cost of Living Council, where he was director of field operations.


Beginning in 1973, he spent four years at the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare as director of its Fair Information Practices Office. In that capacity, he implemented the Privacy Act of 1974 and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, giving students and parents access to school records.


A native of Baltimore, Gleiman earned his undergraduate degree from Loyola College in 1965. After doing graduate work at Johns Hopkins University, he earned a law degree from the University of Baltimore in 1971.
