Greg Graves, Western Pacific Area’s vice president, will retire April 2 after a federal career of nearly 42 years, including 37 years with the Postal Service.
“Greg has been an instrumental member of the leadership team in driving the transformation of retail and delivery to support our overall organizational goals,” Postmaster General Louis DeJoy wrote in a memo last week announcing Graves’ retirement.
“Through his leadership he has helped the organization navigate our restructuring, while also guiding his team to deliver courageously throughout the pandemic and unprecedented election and holiday seasons.”
Western Pacific, also known as WestPac, was created last year. The area has more than 106,000 employees and approximately 39 million addresses across 2.2 million square miles, encompassing 57 percent of the nation’s land mass.
Graves previously served as Western Area’s vice president. Prior to that, he worked in 12 managerial and executive positions in operations, both in the field and at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC.
He joined the Postal Service in 1983 after serving four years in the Marines.
