In his final State of the Business video, PMG Pat Donahoe praises employees for their performance during the holidays and thanks them for their dedication.

The Postal Service delivered 524 million packages in December, up 18 percent from one year earlier.

“You went above and beyond to make sure this was our best season ever,” the PMG says.

Donahoe, who will retire Feb. 1 after 39 years with USPS, also reflects on the organization’s recent progress. He credits employees with helping to stabilize the Postal Service and continue its aggressive move into package delivery.

“This is just the start. We’re inventing our own future,” the PMG says. “There are many, many opportunities to grow.”

The video concludes with the PMG expressing his appreciation to postal employees.

“We’ve been through a lot of changes over the years, and that’s not been easy,” he says. “Frankly, change is rarely easy. I sincerely appreciate the sacrifices that you’ve made for this organization. I know that we’re all going to be better for it in the long run.”

The PMG’s parting words: “Thank you for your support, your dedication to this organization and our customers, and for your continued hard work as we move this organization forward.”
