Former Postmaster General Heads Up Reagan and Dulles Airports in D.C.

Former Postmaster General John E. “Jack” Potter is now The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) President and CEO.  The MWAA operates Ronald Reagan Washington National and Washington Dulles International Airports.

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.
