On December 31, Guy Cottrell retired from his position as Chief Postal Inspector. He held the position for eight and one-half years.
In a December memo announcing Cottrell’s retirement, Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan said, “Guy has been a strong leader of the 2,766 men and women of the Postal Inspection Service, and has been a consistent promoter of the Inspection Service brand —within the Postal Service and with the public. He has deepened Inspection Service partnerships, information sharing and collaborative investigations with national, state and local law enforcement organizations.”
Cottrell, who started his career as a letter carrier in New Orleans, was with the Postal Service for over thirty years.
