USPS names deputy chief

The Postal Service has filled its long-vacant deputy postmaster general post with a former USPS executive.

John Nolan, whose earlier career with the service spanned nearly two decades, will succeed Michael S. Coughlin.

Coughlin retired in July after more than 12 years as the service's deputy chief.

As Postmaster General William J. Henderson's deputy, Nolan will oversee all systems and information programs, including the service's electronic commerce initiatives. He also will manage strategic marketing, product design and production, and retail and international business.


The Postal Service's chief technology officer, chief marketing officer, and senior vice president for corporate and business development will report directly to Nolan.

Nolan worked at the Postal Service for 19 years before leaving in 1989.
