Northeast Area VP Richard Uluski will retire from the Postal Service in June.

Northeast Area VP Richard P. Uluski will retire June 3 after 36 years with the Postal Service.

Uluski has led the area — which spans several states and territories and has 90,000 employees — since 2011. He oversaw numerous consolidations and the opening of two processing and distribution centers, as well as the introduction of multiple delivery innovations.

Uluski also established a strong safety record and led the area through Hurricane Sandy, one of the costliest storms in history, in 2012.

“He led by example in every decision, action and direction,” PMG Megan J. Brennan wrote in a memo this week announcing his retirement.

Uluski began his career as a New Haven, CT, letter-sorting machine operator in 1980. Later assignments included plant manager of the Stamford, CT, P&DC, and operations support manager for Northeast Area.

The PMG said Uluski’s “most enduring legacy” will be his effect on people. “He has been a mentor, a teacher and the consummate professional every step of his career,” she wrote.

Delivery Operations VP Edward Phelan Jr. will serve as Northeast Area’s acting vice president upon Uluski’s retirement, Chief Operating Officer David Williams announced.
