New V.P., Public Affairs and Communications

Postmaster General Jack Potter has announced the appointment of Joanne Giordano as Vice President, Public Affairs and Communications.

Giordano was Senior Vice President, Communications, at America’s Promise — The Alliance for Youth, founded by General Colin Powell.

She also spent 11 years with communications consulting firm Burson-Marsteller in their New York and Singapore offices, rising from account representative to vice president and leaving the firm in 2001 as Global Client Leader.

“During her time at Burson-Marsteller, Joanne was instrumental in generating a great deal of positive publicity for USPS during our 1992 Olympic sponsorship,” Potter said. “So she is no stranger to the Postal Service.”

Giordano replaces Azeezaly Jaffer who resigned in disgrace last summer (see Round-Up posts of July 3 and 26).
