Louis DeJoy to serve as new postmaster general
The board of governors of the United States Postal Service has unanimously elected Louis DeJoy to serve as the 75th postmaster general of the United States and CEO of the world’s largest postal organisation.
DeJoy is an accomplished business executive with more than 35 years of experience. As chairman and CEO of New Breed Logistics, he spent decades in collaboration with the U.S. Postal Service, Boeing, Verizon, Disney, United Technologies and other public and private companies to provide supply chain logistics, programme management and transportation support.
DeJoy is expected to begin serving in his new role effective 15 June. His appointment comes upon the retirement of Megan Brennan, the nation’s 74th postmaster general, who announced her intent to step down in October 2019. (mw)
