COVID-19 command

Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan has established COVID-19 Response Command, a group within the Postal Service that will help ensure the organization takes a comprehensive approach to its response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The group is led by Kristin Seaver, who has stepped away from her regular duties as chief information officer to serve as incident commander.

COVID-19 Response Command covers four key areas, each led by a USPS officer:

  • Employee response: Simon Storey, employee resource management vice president
  • Operational continuity: Joshua Colin, acting processing and maintenance operations vice president
  • Business continuity: Mark Guilfoil, supply management vice president
  • Customer continuity: Steve Monteith, marketing vice president

Janice Walker, corporate communications vice president, coordinates all communications related to COVID-19 Response Command, while David Ellis, managing counsel, coordinates all legal concerns on behalf of the general counsel’s office.

While COVID-19 Response Command is active, other executives and managers will handle the duties of the officers involved with the group.

Scott Bombaugh, engineering systems vice president, will serve as acting chief information officer; Jeffrey Becker, international operations executive director; will serve as acting processing and maintenance operations vice president; Linda DeCarlo, safety manager, will serve as acting employee resource management vice president; and Karen Pompanella, commercial products and services manager, will serve as acting supply management vice president.
