A former USPS executive is making major moves! Yesterday, Visible Supply Chain Management announced that former USPS Chief Marketing Officer Jim Cochrane has joined the company’s Board of Directors. Cochrane will support the company’s vision as it keeps disrupting the supply chain industry in the rapidly shifting eCommerce marketplace.
Jim Cochrane’s Background
Prior to joining Visible, Cochrane served as the Chief Marketing and Sales Officer for the US Postal Service. Before that position, he also served as Chief Information Officer and Executive Vice President. In that role, Cochrane spearheaded the development of technology innovations that USPS still uses to this day, such as implementing the tracking barcodes on shipping labels that workers can scan easily.
Jim Cochrane’s footprint at USPS extends far beyond the Intelligent Mail barcodes. He and his team also spearheaded the advancement of payment technology, secure digital solutions, and corporate information security.
Cochrane’s track record of innovation should prove valuable to Visible, and he appears quite excited about joining the Board.
“Joining a company as dynamic and growth-oriented as Visible is an exciting venture for me. Visible is laser-focused on the future of eCommerce, reinventing themselves and finding new channels and segments,” Cochrane said. “The marketplace is going through tremendous changes right now, and Visible is at the forefront of innovation.”
