Two employees at a New York Post Office submitted sales leads that have brought in almost $3.4 million in new revenue for the current fiscal year.
Brandy Kellerman, a retail associate at the College Point office, submitted a lead through the Clerks Care program after a customer told her he was interested in USPS shipping options.
The customer’s company, which sells packaging supplies, needed faster shipping at a better price.
David Johnson, a Triboro District field sales representative, followed up with the company and signed a Priority Mail deal for $1.9 million.
Patrick Glynn, a letter carrier at the College Point office, submitted a lead through the Customer Connect program about a company along his route.
The business, which sells batteries, wanted to reduce its shipping costs.
Johnson worked with the company to ink a $1.5 million Priority Mail shipping deal.
The revenue from both of these leads has been added to the Postal Service’s Race for a $Billion campaign total.
The initiative — which has reached almost $927 million, according to a July 23 ranking of all district contributions — aims to raise $1 billion through employee-provided sales leads before the fiscal year ends Sept. 30.
“The postal employees in College Point have good reason to celebrate their colleagues’ sales leads,” said Mary Anderson, small-business engagement director at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC. “Brandy and Patrick served their customers well and added to the Postal Service’s bottom line.”
Employees can submit leads through the Business Connect, Clerks Care, Customer Connect, Mail Handlers, Rural Reach and Submit a Lead programs.
