Kearney out as “Stamp Czar”

kearneyWriting for Linn’s Stamp News, Bill McAllister notes that last week’s reshuffle of the USPS Sales and Marketing departments included the ouster of Stephen M. Kearney as head of the agency’s stamp program. USPS Chief Marketing Officer Nagisa Manabe didn’t offer any explanation for the change, which saw the stamp program moved from the Government Relations department to Sales, with Susan McGowan now in charge.

Kearney, who had been a Senior VP and a member of the USPS Executive Committee under previous PMG Jack Potter, and whose LinkedIn profile still proclaims him “Stamp Czar”, will now oversee “customer retention” in the Sales department.
