Louis DeJoy

Postmaster General

Louis DeJoy was born in 1957 in Brooklyn, New York. He earned a Bachelor of Administration in accounting from Stetson University in Central Florida and became a certified public accountant. He served 30 years as the CEO of New Breed Logistics, which was acquired by a Connecticut-based freight transporter, for whom he served as the CEO of their supply chain business in North America until his retirement.

He came out of retirement to become president of LDJ Global Strategies, a small firm with interests in real estate, private equity, consulting, and project management.

The United States Postal Service Board of Governors selected DeJoy as Postmaster General and CEO in May 2020, and he assumed his position in June.

DeJoy is married to Aldona, and they have two children.

In the News…

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy was called to testify before the House of Representatives Oversight Committee, having testified days before to a Senate committee. Lawmakers have expressed concerns about service delays in mail delivery, and have sought to block DeJoy from certain cost-cutting changes he is making at the USPS.

DeJoy told lawmakers that he will push to improve on-time deliveries after the November 3 election, in an effort that he suspended a week ago after a public backlash. He also said he would keep in place a management reshuffle he implemented after assuming his job in June.

“These two changes, creating our new on-time transportation network and designing an engaged functional organizational structure, will be the catalyst for the significant improvements in cost, performance and growth,” DeJoy said.

DeJoy has sought to assure Americans that widespread delays caused by his cost-cutting efforts would not cause their ballots to go uncounted in November, when up to half of U.S. voters could cast their ballots through the mail.
