Senior VP and MTAC Representative, Katherine Versteegh Attends Reception Celebrating U.S. Postmaster General Megan Brennan’s Career

Following the Mailer’s Technical Advisory Committee open session on Tuesday, January 28th, industry friends, family and colleagues gathered for a reception honoring US Postmaster General Megan Brennan at the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum in Washington, DC. In attendance was A.B. Data’s very own Katherine Versteegh, Senior Vice President and MTAC member, representing the ANA Nonprofit Federation. “What a special opportunity to gather and celebrate the significant achievements of Ms. Brennan.” Katherine Versteegh noted. “I can’t think of a better way honor her dedication to the U.S. Postal Service and our industry as a whole. It was an honor be there.”

The evening was laced with camaraderie, fond memories and thoughtful discussion about the current challenges and future opportunities within the mailing industry. It began with a short program honoring Postmaster General Megan Brennan’s long career with the Postal Service. Speakers included J. Pierce Myers, Chairman of the National Postal Forum; Elliott Gruber, Director of the National Postal Museum; and Chairman of the USPS Board of Governors, Robert M. “Mike” Duncan.

Also in attendance were two of PMG Brennan’s distinguished predecessors — John E. “Jack” Potter and Patrick R. Donahoe, the 72nd and 73rd United States Postmaster Generals respectively.

Megan Brennan’s retirement was originally set for January 31st. She agreed to delay it to help facilitate the search for a new PMG and the process associated with the transition. The USPS Board of Governors continues their search today, and in a statement earlier this month, the Chairman of the Board of Governors, Mike Duncan said, “We are grateful to the Postmaster General for her continued commitment to the Postal Service, and share her confidence in the Postal Service’s strong leadership team members who will ensure that we continue to deliver for the American people.”
