PMG Megan Brennan

WASHINGTON — Megan J. Brennan officially became the 74th Postmaster General and CEO of the U.S. Postal Service yesterday, Feb. 1.

Outlining key themes in a letter to employees today, Postmaster General Brennan said she would seek to advance transformative strategies that invest in the future of the Postal Service and shape growth opportunities for the organization and the industries it serves.  Among these strategies are better use of data and technology, speeding the pace of product and service innovations, continual process improvements throughout the organization, and fully engaging and leveraging the talents of its 600,000-employee workforce.

“We can reinvigorate the way we serve our customers and the public by constantly looking forward as an organization, anticipating the changing needs of our customers, and adapting as quickly as we can to a competitive and evolving marketplace,” said Brennan.

Brennan expressed gratitude and appreciation for the hard work, dedicated service and commitment of the Postal Service's 600,000 employees, and the value they provide to the American people every day.

“As we collectively shape a brighter future for the organization, I am always mindful that the Postal Service is not merely defined by what it does, but rather by the many people who have dedicated their careers to serving the American public,” said Brennan. “Your commitment to our public service mission and to delivering for our customers defines who we are as an organization and is the bedrock of all of our successes.”

Appointed by the Governors of the Postal Service and announced in November, Brennan had been the Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of the Postal Service, and previously held roles as Vice President of both Eastern Area and Northeast Area Operations. Brennan began her 29-year Postal Service career as a mail carrier in Lancaster, PA. 

Brennan earned a Master of Business Administration degree as a Sloan fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is also an alumna of Immaculata College in Pennsylvania. She will take the ceremonial oath of office at an installation event at Postal Service Headquarters next month.

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

U.S. Postal Service Delivers on “Our Season” Records 4.3 Percent Increase in Revenue, $754 Million Net Loss in Quarter 1

February 06, 2015 @USPS

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Postal Service ended the first quarter of fiscal 2015 (Oct. 1, 2014 – Dec. 31, 2014) with a 4.3 percent increase in operating revenue over the same period last year and a net loss of $754 million. The increase in operating revenue was driven, in part, by the record number of holiday season packages delivered with high reliability during our busiest time of the year.   The net loss included a $1.4 billion expense accrued for the mandated prepayment to the Postal Service Retiree Health Benefits Fund.

Although revenue and volume are closely linked to the strength of the U.S. economy and changes in how customers use the mail, the Postal Service has been proactive in growing volume in Standard Mail and Shipping and Packages and slowing the decline of the most profitable product, First-Class Mail. Standard Mail volume was up 3.5 percent compared to the same period last year, driven by a 0.9 billion increase in political mail volume, a testament to its effectiveness in political campaigns. First-Class Mail volume decline slowed to a 1.1 percent decrease from the same period last year. Standard Mail revenue and First-Class Mail revenue were up 7.6 percent and 3.7 percent, respectively, compared to the same period last year, driven, in part, by the January 2014 price increase.

“Our employees delivered double-digit growth in packages this holiday season, which shows our growing ability to compete for and win new package delivery customers,” said Postmaster General and Chief Executive Officer Megan Brennan. “To keep the momentum going—and to ensure we are the shipper of choice for our residential and business customers—we will continue to expand customized delivery solutions and package capacity while delivering high levels of service.”

Commenting on the quarterly results, Brennan said, “The Postal Service performed well with regard to revenue generation and cost control during the holiday season.” 

“Though liquidity remains a concern, the Postal Service must begin to make necessary investments to grow our business and address some of the critical vehicle, facility, and package handling equipment requirements that have been deferred in recent years,” said Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President Joseph Corbett.
