Ellis Burgoyne (James J. Lee/Staff)
Postal Service CIO Ellis Burgoyne announced his retirement to employees last week, according to the agency.
Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said in an internal email that even before becoming CIO in 2010, Burgoyne used his understanding of information systems and data to make smart and fast decisions. He will officially step down in early October.
“Please join us in extending Ellis best wishes for a long, restful and rewarding retirement,” Donahoe said.
Burgoyne began his 35-year postal career in 1978 as a letter carrier in Inglewood, Calif., and worked his way up through the organization as Postmaster General of Oakland and the director of various offices before being promoted to CIO.
