Verizon says its newly created global organization – dubbed Verizon Enterprise Solutions – will help it better provide business and government customers with fully integrated enterprise-class solutions.
Verizon says Enterprise Solutions will oversee all business, government and wholesale operations from across the company's wireless and wireline businesses. In addition to announcing the new organization Wednesday, Verizon appointed John Stratton, previously executive vice president and chief operating officer of Verizon Wireless, to the post of president of the new group.
Verizon Enterprise Solutions will manage the carrier's portfolio of enterprise mobility, cloud and IT, strategic networking and advanced communications offerings, as well as specialized solutions for key industries such as health care, travel & transportation, retail, utilities and financial services and IT consulting services. Additionally, Verizon Enterprise Solutions will include the company’s full range of global wholesale offerings.
“Enterprise and government customers are looking for complete solutions. By aligning our efforts, we will be uniquely positioned to meet business customer needs," said Lowell McAdam, Verizon president and chief executive officer. “We know that the intersection of mobility, cloud computing and security will drive a revolution in enterprise IT over the next 10 years. This change will allow us to leverage all of our technology assets to take advantage of growth opportunities around the world."
Other key players in the Verizon Enterprise Solutions structure include Bob Toohey, chief operating officer; Mike Millegan, global president – wholesale; Ajay Waghray, chief information officer; and Kerry Bailey, chief marketing officer.
