From USPS News Link:
A 35-year veteran of the Postal Service, Burgoyne began his career as a letter carrier in Inglewood, CA. A former Postmaster, Burgoyne also served twice as a district manager, was Delivery and Retail VP, and VP of the former Southwest Area before joining the Executive Leadership Team as CIO in 2010.
As the Postal Service’s CIO, Burgoyne has overall responsibility for the advancement of new mail intelligence, as well as the Postal Service’s engineering systems, payment technology and corporate information security. He is responsible for the world’s third-largest computer network, as well as one of the largest intranets.
PMG Pat Donahoe credited Burgoyne with guiding USPS through one of its most pressing challenges — the use of information systems — adding his experience and background gave him a unique understanding of his duties as CIO. “Even before becoming CIO, Ellis used his deep understanding of how to marshal systems and data to make smart, fast operational decisions,” said Donahoe.
Burgoyne plans to leave USPS in early October.
