Brix oversees all operations, marketing and customer service in the area, which has more than 36 million customers in five states; more than 77,000 employees; and an operating budget that exceeds $7 billion.
In a memo announcing the appointment last week, Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan wrote that Brix has “demonstrated excellent leadership, a commitment to customers and employees, and delivered strong results” during the past year.
Brennan also noted that Brix led major safety initiatives that reduced accidents by 8.5 percent.
Brix, a postal manager for 30 years, previously served as Western Area’s operations support manager. Other assignments included Northland District’s senior plant manager and Portland District’s acting district manager.
