White House nominates Captain Moak to USPS BOG

Today the White House announced the nomination of Captain Donald Lee Moak, of Florida, to be a Member of the USPS BOG for the remainder of a seven-year term expiring December 8, 2022.

Captain Moak currently serves as the CEO of the Moak Group, a consulting firm located in Washington DC and on the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Drone Advisory Committee.

Earlier in his career, Moak served as a Marine Corps and Navy fighter pilot, a B-767 Delta Air Lines captain, and recently as a co-chair of the U.S. DOT’s Special Committee to Review the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Aircraft Certification Process as well as the President and CEO of the Air Line Pilots Association.

His name has been sent to the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs (HSGAC) for consideration and a hearing is expected in the coming weeks or months on his nomination and that of William Zollars of Kansas, who was nominated on January 6 to the BOG as well for the remainder of a seven-year term expiring December 8, 2022.

Zollars was the former president and chief executive officer of YRC Worldwide, Inc., an American holding company of freight shipping brands. Prior to that, he was an executive at a number of other various transportation and supply chain management companies.

NALC will closely monitor the progress of their nominations through HSGAC and the Senate to keep letter carriers updated on any movement.
