United States Postal Service Announces Retirement of Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan

WASHINGTON — The United States Postal Service today announced that Megan J. Brennan, Postmaster General and Chief Executive Officer, is retiring effective Jan. 31, 2020.

“Megan Brennan is a devoted public servant who has helped lead the United States Postal Service through some very challenging circumstances,” said Robert M. Duncan, Chairman of the Board of Governors. “The Governors greatly appreciate her leadership and devotion to the Postal Service.”

“Having begun her career as a letter carrier more than three decades ago, Megan has a fundamental understanding of the important role this organization plays in communities around the country and to our broader economy,” said Duncan. “She has been a strong advocate for postal employees and customers.  We especially appreciate her recent leadership of the Postal Service’s efforts to make significant changes to the international mail system, and level the playing field for American businesses.”

“In the months to come, the Governors will conduct a nationwide search for the 75th Postmaster General of the United States, while continuing to work with Postmaster General Brennan through a successful holiday season and a seamless transition in leadership,” Duncan added.

Brennan expressed her sincere gratitude to the men and women of the United States Postal Service. “I have had the privilege to work with you over the course of my 33-year career.  You embody the spirit of public service, you earn the trust of the American people every day, and you continually reinforce my reverence for this institution and my abiding belief in our mission.”

Brennan is the 74th Postmaster General and first woman to serve in this role. Upon her retirement she will have served in the position for five years. Brennan previously served as Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of the Postal Service for four years, and held prior roles as Vice President of both Eastern Area and Northeast Area Operations. Brennan began her Postal Service career as a letter carrier in Lancaster, PA.

As Postmaster General, Brennan advanced technology and customer-centric strategies to invest in the future of the Postal Service and to shape growth opportunities for the organization and the industries it serves. These strategies encompassed better use of data and technology, improved speed-to-market of product and service innovations, continuously improved processes throughout the organization, and fully engaged and leveraged the talents of the organization’s 635,000-employee workforce.

“When I was appointed Postmaster General, I made a commitment to the Board of Governors that I would serve for five years and it has been my absolute honor to do so,” said Brennan. “I feel a deep responsibility to this organization and to its future. The advance notice of my retirement will allow the Board adequate time to conduct an executive search, select the next Postmaster General, and ensure a seamless transition.”

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

Hot dog! Now more management needs to follow. Now we need to appointment a PMG who will clean house of bad management.

About time!! One of the worst and most ignorant PMG’s of all time!! None of her scattered brained ideas have benefited the USPS. President Trump should remove PMG Brennan now!

She’s been looking like crap lately…. tipping the scales at around 300 lbs.

I knew something was up when she wasn’t at the Woodstock stamp unveiling… hopefully she can focus on her health now.

We will probably get somebody worse then her at PMG, if that’s possible…. David E. Williams comes to mind as a nightmare hire.

Doesn’t matter who retires they still treat their carriers like crap so one gone there will be a other

help wanted: postmaster general needed immediately! NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY !!

It will be an in house hire…. nobody in the private sector would come near this dumpster fire…. Anthony Frank and Carvin Marvin were the last PMG’s hired from the private sector….and both hated heading this dysfunctional agency.

Maggie’s last act as PMG will be to give Linda Malone a nice cushy job at the spa at Elephant Plaza…even though she’s done a terrible job as head of CapMetro….her office will probably be across from Kristens….where they can brainstorm about drone delivery and driverless trucks.

They need to pay us for time that we go over our evaluated time instead of making us take days off. They have all these tools to watch if we’re actually working or goofing off. And I know the majority of us are really working.

After hearing about her upcoming retirement, I’m not asking for anything for Christmas. This Christmas present can’t be topped. Keep your fingers crossed, maybe they’ll find somebody that will clean house on the top heavy useless management.

she is actually pretty smart where else can earn 400000.00 a year running a company that lost 40 billion during her tenure …never would happen with a real company ..good luck with your next job ..

I would like to talk to Megan about the horrible service at my post office
