Chuck McGann to leave USPS for private sector

The chief information security officer for the United States Postal Service is leaving government for an undisclosed position in the private sector, the USPS confirmed to FedScoop Tuesday.

The agency did not announce McGann’s departure date.

“After 27 years of dedicated service, Chuck McGann is retiring from the Postal Service,” USPS spokesman Dave Partenheimer said in a statement to FedScoop.

According to Partenheimer, as part of his job, McGann was responsible for overseeing the information security of one of the largest technology networks maintained by any organization in the world.

McGann’s departure comes just eight days after USPS announced a major cyber intrusion that potentially compromised the data of approximately 800,000 current and former employees. McGann’s departure, however, was not related to the breach and had been planned, according to a senior USPS official.
