Johns Creek Resident Sworn in as Postmaster

Maged S. Aziz has been appointed the 35th Postmaster of Atlanta.

Maged S. Aziz, a Johns Creek resident, has been appointed the 35th Postmaster of Atlanta. The new postmaster took his official oath of office during an installation ceremony on Friday, Feb. 10, at Atlanta City Hall.

Aziz began his career in July 1994 as city letter carrier in Jersey City, NJ. His record of successful performance throughout his career earned him assignments of increasing responsibility including Station Manager in Jersey City; Postmaster of South Orange, NJ; Manager of Post Office Operations in Greensboro, NC; and Postmaster of Garland, Texas.

He also served  as Manager of Operations Programs Support for the  Mid-Carolinas District; Senior Manager of Post Office Operations in the Mid-Carolinas District and acting Plant Manager of the Asheville, NC, Processing and Distribution Facility, the Charlotte, NC, Logistics and Distribution Center and the Atlanta Network Distribution/Surface Transfer Center.

“The office of Atlanta Postmaster comes with many challenges,” says Aziz.  “I want Atlanta residents to know that along with the dedicated employees who serve with me, I will do my best to ensure that they get the level of quality service they expect and deserve.”

As Atlanta postmaster, Aziz is responsible for nearly 1,500 employees working in 53 retail stations, branches and carrier units. The Atlanta Post Office delivers mail to more than 400,000 addresses each day.

Aziz obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Architectural Engineering at the Ain Shames University, Cairo, Egypt.

The Atlanta Postmaster also serves as co-chair of the Greater Atlanta Postal Customer Council (PCC). For more than 50 years, PCCs across the county have worked to establish dialogues and improve communications between the U.S. Postal Service and its customers. In 2011, the Greater Atlanta PCC was named "PCC of the Year" during National PCC Day, an annual event that celebrates the Postal Service’s partnership with its customers. This honor will focus the national spotlight on Atlanta when the Greater Atlanta PCC hosts National PCC Day in September.

Congratulations, Mr. Aziz. I wish you much luck as you tackle your new position at Postmaster of Atlanta! By the way, any news on when Johns Creek will get it's own post office?

I wouldn't hold my breath on a Post Office in Johns Creek! The last I heard, the USPS doesn't have the money for one.
