Qwest shuffles sales management
Qwest Communications has shuffled the leadership of two sales groups and its product/IT department.
Teresa Taylor, previously executive vice president and chief administrative officer, has been named executive vice president for the Business Markets Group (BMG). She will oversee all sales, marketing and operations for national business sales, including government sales on the local, state and federal levels.
Dan Yost, previously executive vice president for product and IT, has been named executive vice president for the Mass Markets Organization (MMO), overseeing all sales, marketing and operations for in-region consumer and small-business sales. Yost replaces Paula Kruger, who the company tersely explained “will be leaving the company.”
Neil Cox, previously vice president for BMG national sales in the central region, has been promoted to executive vice president for product and IT, leading the product development and management of Qwest’s voice, data and IP portfolio.
Rich Baer, currently executive vice president and general counsel, will also now serve as chief administrative officer, assuming the duties previously held by Taylor, now in charge of Qwest’s BMG group. In addition to leading Qwest’s law department and the company’s risk management and compliance efforts, Baer will oversee public policy, federal relations, human resources, labor relations, corporate communications, the Qwest Foundation, corporate social responsibility, and sponsorships and events.
