USPS elevates Otto to CTO

Postmaster General John E. Potter this week shifted the Postal Service's IT organization around by naming Robert Otto the new chief technology officer.

Otto replaces Charlie Bravo, who became senior vice president for Intelligent Mail and Address Quality. Otto also will retain the title of senior vice president for Information Technology, essentially making him the CIO and CTO.

Potter announced the changes at the Board of Governors meeting in Washington.

In his new position, Bravo will be in charge of barcoding on envelopes, packages, sacks, trays, pallets and customer forms.
