Marjan Osvald

Marjan Osvald, from Slovenia, has been the Deputy Director General of the UPU International Bureau since the beginning of 2022, following his election by member countries at the Universal Postal Congress in Abidjan in September 2021.  

During his over 25 years of experience at Pošta Slovenije, he built a solid track record as an executive in international postal relations and operations, successfully managing complex international projects. Marjan was also an active member of PostEurop, serving three terms as a Board member, and was a longstanding member of various steering committees within International Post Corporation. His involvement in research and innovation projects as part of the EU Horizon 2020 project team focused on cognitive logistics involving core technologies, such as artificial intelligence, the Social Internet of Things, and big data analytics. 

Serving as the UPU National Quality of Service Coordinator at Pošta Slovenije, he received the 2014 Postal Technology Award for Digital Innovation of the Year, for the concept of new electronic postal customs procedures. However, his journey with the UPU began much earlier, with the Beijing Congress in 1999, and his dedication to the Union has been growing ever since. 

Marjan, 55, is married with three children.
