As fuel costs rise and environmental concerns mount, it's clear the way mail is delivered must change. I'm excited to be at a company capable of effecting that change.
Seattle, Wash. (PRWEB) July 23, 2008
Earth Class Mail Corp., the global leader in delivering postal mail online, announced Chris Salvage, a 24-year veteran of FedEx, as its new vice president of operations. The experience Salvage garnered by overseeing the daily delivery of 200,000 packages for more than a decade will help Earth Class Mail scale its online postal-mail service to meet larger volumes.
Salvage's career in logistics, operations management, strategic planning, and business development with FedEx make him an ideal addition to Earth Class Mail. Managing a division of more than 1,000 employees has seasoned Chris for his role at the company that is building the future of postal-mail delivery.
"We have seen increasing interest from large enterprises and European posts that have the potential to boost our mail volumes exponentially," said Ron Wiener, CEO and Postmaster General of Earth Class Mail. "With the team we now have in place, and this key addition of Chris Salvage, I'm confident we're in a position to execute on the scale we envisioned."
"Earth Class Mail is an incredibly innovative company which has implemented technologies and practices that are transforming the postal industry," said Salvage. "As fuel costs rise and environmental concerns mount, it's clear the way mail is delivered must change. I'm excited to be at a company capable of effecting that change."
