WASHINGTON, DC — Postmaster General Louis DeJoy recently delivered remarks at the 2023 Concordia United States Summit in Cary, NC. DeJoy highlighted how he has leveraged his private sector background to reshape and strengthen the U.S. Postal Service, the nation’s most trusted agency. Following his remarks, DeJoy was interviewed by Michelle Giuda, CEO of the Krach Institute for Tech Diplomacy at Purdue University.
“It’s about innovation. It’s about a commitment to work and precision. It’s about competing in a marketplace … and getting a competitive advantage on everything around you,” DeJoy said in response to a question from Giuda about his approach to leading USPS.
DeJoy’s remarks focused on how the Postal Service is continuing to transform and improve operating practices across the organization. During the session with Giuda, he discussed how he has worked to address legacy financial issues at the organization, and highlighted how the Postal Service has invested in new technologies to improve the delivery of mail and packages, including new sorting machines and modern and efficient delivery vehicles.
The 2023 Concordia United States Summit took place Nov. 7 and focused on delivering action-oriented solutions to advance national priorities in key areas such as trade, manufacturing and supply chains.
