Timothy Costello has been named Southern Area’s retail and delivery operations vice president, succeeding Shaun Mossman, who plans to retire from the Postal Service on Dec. 31.
The area has 18 postal districts spread across 11 states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Texas, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee, as well as Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Costello, who was named to his new position Oct. 24, most recently served as acting sales vice president. Prior to that, he was district manager for the South Florida, Dallas and Alabama districts and served in detail assignments as district manager for the South Jersey and Tennessee districts.
He joined the Postal Service as a letter carrier in 1988, moved to customer services and served as Postmaster in Booneville, Vicksburg and Brandon, MS.
In the interim, Mossman is on special assignment with the chief retail and delivery officer to help complete the Postal Service’s restructuring and to finalize the organization’s retail and delivery strategic roadmap.
He was named to his most recent position in August as part of the organization’s restructuring. Mossman had been Southern Area vice president since 2016.
Before that, he served as finance and planning vice president, operations support manager for Western Area and district manager for the Nevada-Sierra and Big Sky districts.
Mossman joined the Postal Service in 1987 as a letter carrier in Newport News, VA.
