Employee Profile: Clarence Brown

Clarence Brown

Medford, OR, Building Equipment Mechanic Clarence Brown joined the Postal Service in 1973 as a Christmas casual after serving four years in the Coast Guard. He enjoyed his time with USPS, and when he was offered the opportunity to become a PTF clerk after his 90-day term, he jumped at the chance.

Brown spent one year in his new position until he decided to switch crafts to become a carrier where he remained for 27 years. In 2002, Brown opted to tackle new challenges and switched to a career path in maintenance by becoming an MPE. The lure of expanding his horizons later beckoned him to accept a position as an electronic technician. After many years of dedicated service, Brown eventually chose a position as a building equipment mechanic, the one he holds to this day.

With 45 years of service in the books, Brown recently received his 45-year service award. He looks forward to retiring later this year and spending time with his wife of 42 years and 10 grandchildren.

“I’m proud to have worked for the US Postal Service all these years and I appreciate all the opportunities and benefits it has provided me,” said Brown.
