District Manager Mike Powers Retires


On Thursday, June 22, 2017 at the Charlestown Knights of Columbus Hall, Mike Powers, stood in front of family, friends and colleagues and said goodbye to his beloved Greater Boston District after 37 years with the Postal Service. 

When Mike began his career with the USPS as a clerk in the fall of 1980, he had no idea what the future held for him. Rising through the ranks as a supervisor, superintendent and manager, Mike excelled at both the Mail Processing and Delivery & Customer Service sides of the business.

Mike’s early years in management were largely connected to the Boston Post Office. Among the positions he held were Manager, Customer Services, Executive Postmaster for the Boston Post Office , Senior Manager, Distribution Operations and Manager, Distribution Operations.  These assignments were followed by promotions to the District Manager positions for the Massachusetts and Southeast New England District.  Since April 2014, Mike Powers held the position of District Manager for the Greater Boston District.
