Federal 100: John Edgar
Vice president, IT solutions
U.S. Postal Service
Edgar spearheaded two projects that are transforming the way USPS interacts with the mailing industry and public.

"John's leadership and focus on the end goal were critical to the successful implementation of the Full Service solution."
