April Industry E-Newsletter: From the American Catalog Mailers Association (ACMA)
Dear Members and Friends:
ACMA continues important work with the USPS: Last month, we had another “top-to-top” meeting with the USPS. We met with PMG Jack Potter and other top USPS executives who control our future with the mail: CMO Anita Bizzoto, VP Pricing Steve Kearney, VP Legislative Affairs Marie Therese Dominguez, and others including his chief of staff. Due to a time limit on our meeting, I asked Monica Smith, CEO of Marketsmith to join me. Monica’s firm works at a deep level with a variety of catalog companies. She has intimate knowledge of these companies’ financial performance and operating priorities. Monica has personally reviewed over 200 cataloger P&Ls and her company works with catalogers who sell less than $5 million to over $50 billion each year.
