PMG Potter Appoints Two Officers

Postmaster General Jack Potter has announced the appointments of two new officers to senior U.S. Postal Service positions.

William Gilligan has been named chief postal inspector. As acting chief postal inspector, since October, Gilligan has realigned inspection service resources with the goal of improving protection of customers, employees and postal assets. “Under his leadership, greater focus has been placed on security, including cyber security, revenue fraud and fraud prevention,” Potter said in a release.

Potter also announced the hire of Stephen Masse as vice president, finance and planning. Masse comes to the Postal Service from aerospace firm BAE, where he was senior vice president, finance and operations. Previous positions at BAE include controller and vice president of finance.

Masse will report to Joe Corbett, the USPS’s executive vice president and chief financial officer. Masse will be responsible for financial information from budgets to the five-year plan, as well as development of a new 18-month financial plan that will be adjusted on a dynamic basis, revenue and expense budgeting, forecasting, financial analysis and program review.
