Former Postmaster General Heads Up Reagan and Dulles Airports in D.C.
Potter, 55, is the son of a Manhattan mail carrier. He began his career as a postal clerk in New York in 1978. Potter served as Postmaster General from 2001 to 2010.
According to the Washington Post, Potter signed five-year contract and will receive a salary of $350,000, plus a $25,000 signing bonus and annual bonuses of up to 20 percent of salary.
"Potter’s appointment to lead two of the Washington area’s busiest airports and the construction of a Metrorail extension to Dulles International Airport closed out a year-long — and, at times, rocky — search for a chief executive to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority," writes reporter Ann E. Marimow.
