Datamatx’ Harry Stephens Receives Lifetime Achievement Award
ATLANTA—Oct. 4, 2012—Datamatx, a national outsourcing provider and leader in the distribution of critical business communications and payment services, announced that its president/CEO and founder, Harry Stephens, was selected by U.S. Postal Service Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe to receive a lifetime achievement award for his commitment and success in serving the Greater Atlanta Postal Customer Council.
Donahoe recognized Stephens not only for his contributions as an executive board member to the Greater Atlanta Postal Customer Council, but for his continued and proactive involvement in postal reform and the key role he played in the “2nd ounce free” ruling for business mailers from the USPS earlier this year.
An active advocate for business mailers across the country, Stephens is involved in several postal trade associations. In addition to the Greater Atlanta Postal Customer Council, he also serves as a member of the Major Mailers Association (MMA), PCC Advisory Committee (PCCAC), Board Member of the National Postal Policy Council (NPPC) and The Imaging Network Group (INg), an association for Transactional and Direct Mail Marketing service bureaus. As an expert on high-volume print and mail, Stephens has frequently been asked to speak to various USPS groups, including the Board of Governors, about postal reform and other issues affecting business mailers.
“It is an honor to be recognized by our postmaster general as a member of the Greater Atlanta Postal Customer Council, which was named the Postal Customer Council of the Year in 2011. This organization includes some of the top business mailers not only in the Atlanta area, but across the nation, and I’m proud to be counted among its members,” said Stephens.
“Speaking on behalf of Datamatx, we remain committed to delivering the highest quality in business mailing services to our customers in order to help them achieve their business goals. It is often perceived that a lifetime achievement award means that one is finished with what they set out to accomplish, however I believe that with a pending USPS public reform and several other ambitious endeavors coming up on the horizon, our work is not yet done when it comes to shaping the future of our U.S. Postal Service,” he added.
