Mailing industry advocate.
Thomas W. Tully, a former senior executive at McGraw-Hill and long-time mailing industry advocate, passed away December 27 after a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 70.
Tully, who at one time was a columnist for FOLIO:, spent 30 years at McGraw-Hill and was a member of the Postmaster General's Mailers Technical Advisory Committee (MTAC)âof which he was national chair from 1996-2000âand the Periodicals Operations Review Team.
âTom Tully was a remarkable individual and was a magnificent figure in Washington,â American Business Media president Gordon T. Hughes II said in a statement. âNot only did he represent The McGraw-Hill Companies, but Tom represented the very best in business media.â ABM named an award after Tully in 2000.
âAlthough Tomâs first loyalty was to McGraw-Hill, his efforts benefited all periodicals mailers,â ABM general counsel David Straus said. âFrom our travels together, I learned that everyone who knew what USPS stood for knew Tom. More importantly, they liked him.â
