Winners of the 2021 PCC Leadership Awards were honored June 2 during an interactive, virtual ceremony.
The celebration was co-hosted by Chief Customer and Marketing Officer Steve Monteith and Marketing Vice President Sheila Holman.
PCCs, or Postal Customer Councils, educate businesses on the benefits of working with USPS. Representatives from the Postal Service and from commercial mailers team up to solve problems, discuss best practices and promote the exchange of ideas.
