Pitney Bowes, Stamford, Conn., announced Murray D. Martin’s role will change from president and chief operating officer to president and chief executive officer. Also, Michael J. Critelli, formerly the company’s chairman and executive officer, will become executive chairman. The recent postal reform contributed to Critelli’s new position.
Said Critelli, “I am pleased that the Board agreed that the time is right to evolve our leadership structure, given both our progress in expanding the business and the emerging opportunities in the global postal and public policy environment.”
Robert E. Weissman, lead director of the organization’s Board of Directors, said of Martin, “We are very excited to have a proven leader like Murray Martin become the next CEO of Pitney Bowes, and we are confident that he will continue to drive growth and profitability at the company.”

Critelli served as chairman and chief executive officer of Pitney Bowes beginning in 1997. He was co-chair of the Mailing Industry Task Force, and is now a member of Eaton Corporation’s Board of Directors, as well as chairman of the board for four nonprofit organizations, including the National Urban League Board of Trustees.
