Postmaster General Jack Potter has announced the selection of Drew Aliperto as vice president, Area Operations, for the Pacific Area. He replaces Michael Daley, who will retire next month after a 37-year career with the Postal Service.
In his new role, Aliperto will be responsible for approximately 14 percent of the nation’s mail and an area which has met and exceeded national on-time performance averages for Express, First-Class and Priority Mail.
“Drew’s extensive experience has given him a unique understanding of the means and methods necessary to achieve optimal performance of the state-of-the-art processing equipment and systems that support the most technologically advanced mail system in the world,” said PMG Jack Potter. “It also has given him a special appreciation of the critical role of our employees in maintaining their effectiveness.”
Aliperto, currently manager, Operations Support for the Pacific Area, has had responsibility for the development and implementation of operational programs and policies throughout some of the most geographically diverse and expansive service territories in the Postal Service.
A 32-year veteran of the Postal Service, Aliperto began his postal career as a mail handler in St. Paul, MN, in 1978. He later held several management positions, including manager and senior manager of Distribution Operations at processing facilities in Minneapolis and St. Paul, as well as plant manager.
Before moving to his current position, Aliperto served for a time as the senior plant manager of the Sacramento P&DC.
