The US Postal Service (USPS) has appointed Douglas Tulino, a 41-year veteran of the service, deputy Postmaster General, reporting directly to Postmaster General and CEO Louis DeJoy. Tulino also becomes a member of the Postal Service’s board of governors and continues in his current role as chief human resources officer (CHRO).
As deputy Postmaster General and CHRO, Tulino will ensure the organization’s culture, talent, labor relations and leadership development are such that they are all contributing to the successful implementation of the Delivering for America Plan announced on March 23. Tulino will also play a key leadership role in ongoing stakeholder outreach.
“As we have been sharing our vision for a more vibrant US Postal Service, Doug has been a key player, providing thoughtful leadership as we have worked collaboratively with our stakeholders to advance our plans for growth, high performance and financial sustainability,” DeJoy said. “His capacity for listening and problem-solving, as well as his deep knowledge of the opportunities and challenges before us, have earned him the trust of many. Now, as deputy Postmaster General and CHRO, he will play a pivotal role in ensuring the Postal Service has the culture, talent and stability necessary to become the high-performing service organization it aspires to be.”
Last November, Tulino became executive vice president and chief human resources officer (CHRO), overseeing all aspects of human resources for the postal service’s 644,000-member workforce. As deputy Postmaster General, he will continue to oversee labor relations, humans resource management, organizational development, compensation and benefits, learning and development, recruiting and hiring, and HR technology. In addition, he will serve as the sponsor of the Executive Diversity Council, which is chaired by DeJoy.
