Board leadership

Ron A. Bloom and Roman Martinez IV have been unanimously elected chairman and vice chairman, respectively, of the USPS Board of Governors.

The elections occurred during the board’s Feb. 9 meeting.

Bloom succeeds Robert M. Duncan, the board’s chairman since September 2018, who will continue his term as a governor.

Bloom has served on the board since August 2019. During a career that has spanned more than 40 years, he has held senior leadership roles with labor unions, financial services firms and the federal government.

Martinez has also served on the board since August 2019 and has chaired the Audit and Finance Committee since October of that year. He has significant experience in the private sector and helping govern private and nonprofit institutions.

The USPS Board of Governors acts much like a board of directors, conducting long-range planning and setting strategic policies, among other duties.
