The Postmaster General today announced the appointment of Ronald A. Stroman as Deputy Postmaster General (DPMG). Stroman, who most recently served as staff director, Committee on Oversight and Government Relations at the U.S. House of Representatives, will bring more than 30 years of professional experience in government, legislative affairs and leadership when he joins USPS as DPMG April 4.

As DPMG, Stroman will lead all outreach and communications with congressional and mailing industry leaders, as well as help ensure that every customer experience is a positive one.

The DPMG position, like the Postmaster General position, is hired by the USPS Board of Governors. As DPMG, Stroman will serve on the board and on PMG Pat Donahoe’s Executive Leadership Team. The vice presidents of Government Relations, Corporate Communications and Consumer and Industry Affairs, and the Judicial Officer will report to Stroman.

“The board is pleased that Ron has accepted this appointment,” said Board Chairman Louis Giuliano. “His depth of understanding of the legislative process, as well as his demonstrated ability to work with members on both sides of the aisle, makes him an important addition to the USPS team as we work through the many issues facing us today.”

As DPMG, Stroman will play the lead role in continuing to work with Congress to restructure the prefunding of retiree health benefits, adjust delivery frequency, and gain greater flexibility in aligning the Postal Service processing, distribution and retail networks. He will work closely to help strengthen relationships with the mailing industry and identify opportunities to improve interactions with postal customers.

Stroman has held senior positions at the U.S. House of Representatives, the General Accounting Office and the U.S. Department of Transportation, among other positions. He earned his Juris Doctorate from Rutgers University Law Center.

“A manager and a leader, Ron’s career is a testament to his ability to work in a bipartisan fashion and communicate effectively through challenge and change,” said Donahoe. “I look forward to working closely with Ron as we continue our evolution as a forward-thinking, fast-acting company with outstanding service as its foundation.”
