AT&T appoints chief strategy officer

Four company veterans are given new titles and responsibilities

AT&T has appointed its first chief strategy officer to develop the company's road map, including long-term mobile capacity needs, the company announced Monday.

John Stankey, who also takes the title group president, has led nearly every major AT&T business unit during his 27-year career, the company said. It was one of four executive changes that were announced.

Ralph de la Vega was named president and CEO of AT&T mobility. He previously was president and CEO of AT&T mobility and consumer markets. De la Vega will focus on AT&T's mobile markets, including smartphone services, the company's strongest growth area.

Also on Monday, Andy Geisse was named senior executive vice president for AT&T's business and home solutions. Geisse, an executive with 32 years in AT&T's business and consumer segments, will be responsible for serving business customers and for U-verse broadband and voice service for residential customers.

AT&T also named John Donovan senior executive vice president for AT&T technology and network operations, including its mobile broadband network. Donovan was formerly CTO at AT&T.

All four men will report to AT&T Chairman and CEO Randall Stephenson.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
