John M. Dunlop has been appointed plant and process modernization vice president.
The plant and process modernization team was established last year to focus on an important part of the Delivering for America plan: investing in the organization’s mail and package processing network.
The Postal Service has made significant progress during the past several months in the planning and design efforts associated with transforming its network.
Dunlop, whose appointment was announced last week, began his career with the Postal Service as a mechanical engineer in the mechanization division of Facilities in 1989.
During the past 30 years, he has been involved in design, financial justification, installation and activation of equipment and systems for almost every major processing plant in the network.
He also led the team that deployed conventional and robotic systems in 50 annexes for the 2021 peak holiday delivery season.
Dunlop will report to Chief Technology Officer Scott Bombaugh.
