Pitney Bowes Creates Global Mailing Organization
The move, announced yesterday, will enable the company to use its resources to drive growth worldwide and address opportunities at the scale required to be first to market and best to market.
Pitney Bowes also announced plans last month to spin off its office systems business so it could focus on growth opportunities in designated markets while maximizing speed and customer responsiveness.
Murray Martin, who formerly led the company's international operations, will head the new organization as executive vice president and group president of global mailing systems. Martin will report to chairman/CEO Michael J. Critelli.
"I believe that a unified, global mailing solutions strategy is the most effective way to win in the rapidly changing postal marketplace which is being driven, particularly outside of the U.S., by the forces of deregulation, competition and evolving technology," Critelli said. "This new organization should strengthen our ability to meet the dynamic needs of global customers, aggressively pursue new opportunities, and galvanize our growth internationally and domestically through the economies of scale and efficiencies that a joint organization will yield."
Critelli also said that the strategic realignment will be transparent to customers.
