AT&T shakes up exec lineup


AT&T (T) reconfigured some of its executive positions, a move that followed a fiscally tough fourth quarter highlighted by a failed attempt to acquire rival T-Mobile USA.

The telecom giant reported that John Stankey has moved from president and CEO of AT&T’s Business Solutions business to a new position of group president and chief strategy officer. In his new post, Stankey will be “responsible for developing the roadmap to maximize future growth opportunities, including corporate development, addressing long-term wireless-capacity needs, capital allocation strategies and identifying the best strategic paths for low-growth and non-strategic assets.”

Current AT&T Mobility head Ralph de la Vega looks to have lost his control over AT&T’s consumer wireline broadband business and will now be focused exclusively on the company’s mobile operations as president and CEO of AT&T Mobility.

De la Vega’s previous position as head of AT&T’s consumer wireline broadband business was handed to Andy Geisse, who was named senior EVP of AT&T Business and Home Solutions. In that position Geisse will be responsible for “serving the business segment – from global enterprise customers to small businesses,” and will also lead AT&T’s Home Solutions team that runs the company’s U-verse, broadband and voice services in AT&T’s 22-state local wireline operations.

Finally, John Donovan has moved from CTO from senior EVP of AT&T’s Technology and Network Operations.

All will continue to report to AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson.
