Mr. Smith, who during his 40 plus years as a career postal employee, climbed the ladder to become Postmaster of the second largest city in the United States. But it was his stint as the postal service’s Manager of Marketing that helped Smith gain valuable knowledge and experience in marketing solutions. “Being the Manager of Marketing gave me a chance to meet many business owners and see firsthand the needs of the community".
Since launching his direct mail company, Smith said he has been fortunate to receive overwhelming support from clients familiar with his excellent reputation and standing in the postal community.
