AT&T Shuffles Management

Dallas – Ralph de la Vega will
focus on AT&T’s wireless operations under a new AT&T management
structure in which the company also created the new position of president/chief
strategy officer.

De la Vega is now president/CEO
of AT&T Mobility. His previous position, held since Oct. 2008, was
president/CEO of AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. He will focus on
expanding the company’s


position, the company said.

Under the changes, de la Vega
loses responsibility for the company’s 22-state consumer wireline operations,
which include TV service,


and voice services to the home.

In other changes,

John Stankey

was promoted to the newly created
position of group president and chief strategy officer. His task is to develop
“a 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,” AT&T said.

Andy Geisse was named senior executive
VP for AT&T’s business and consumer segments, which includes the home
wireless operations formerly headed up by de la Vega. John Donovan was named
senior executive VP for AT&T technology and network operations, including
wireless-network operations.
