DMA STATEMENT: Pat Donahoe Becomes Deputy Postmaster General
WASHINGTON, June 23, 2005 – The Direct Marketing Association’s (The DMA) vice president, government relations, Jerry Cerasale, today issued the following statement regarding the announcement that Pat Donahoe has been sworn in as the new Deputy Postmaster general for the U.S. Postal Service:
"We have worked closely with Pat Donohoe in his role as Chief Operating Officer at the Postal Service and congratulate him as he takes on this new leadership role.
While serving as the Service's Chief Operating Officer, Pat's responsiveness to and resolution of service problems brought to his attention by The DMA and its members companies is the type of personal commitment we've come to expect from him and other members of PMG Potter's management team. This customer orientation to postal operations is, we believe, a key factor in the recent rebound of and growth in standard mail volume.
We wish Pat well and look forward to continuing to work cooperatively with him and the rest of the USPS management team as they work to build a vibrant, high-tech and customer-focused Postal Service for the 21st century."
