Taking the helm of a major organization is always a serious challenge. When the organization is in the midst of widely publicized turmoil, the challenge is magnified immensely.
For Louis DeJoy, who recently became postmaster general, it would be an understatement to say that he faces a challenge.
Indeed, the United States Postal Service has lost $78 billion over the past 13 years and is facing concerns about bankruptcy. The future of the Postal Service is the subject of fierce debate in Washington.
However, the challenges posed by big problems can also provide big opportunities. DeJoy, who spent three decades as the CEO of New Breed Logistics, can bring meaningful change to a federal agency with centuries behind it.
