Verizon brings all enterprise offerings under a new global organization

Verizon has decided to create a new global organization
that will offer Verizon’s enterprise offerings including its enterprise
mobility, cloud and IT, strategic networking and advanced communications.

The new organization called Verizon Enterprise Solutions
will oversee Verizon’s solutions for  government customers and key
industries such as health care, travel & transportation, retail, utilities
and financial services and IT consulting services.

Verizon Enterprise Solutions will include the company’s
full range of global wholesale offerings as well.

The move is expected to assist Verizon to strongly enable
it to provide business and government customers with fully integrated
enterprise-class solutions.

John Stratton, previously executive vice president
and chief operating officer of Verizon Wireless, has been named president of
Verizon Enterprise Solutions.

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
ten years. This change will allow us to leverage all of our technology assets
to take advantage of growth opportunities around the world,” McAdam added.

Stratton will lead a team of experienced executives from
across Verizon, including:


Bob Toohey will serve as chief operating officer. Toohey,
who served previously as president of Verizon Business, will lead all global
sales and operations functions, providing enterprise and government customers
with advanced industry solutions.

Mike Millegan will continue to serve as global president
– Wholesale, with responsibility for the company’s global wholesale strategy
and business operations.

Ajay Waghray, currently chief information officer of
Verizon Wireless, will serve as CIO and lead all IT initiatives.

Kerry Bailey, currently group president of Verizon’s
Terremark IT solutions arm, will serve as the chief marketing officer.

This new management team will build on Verizon’s strength
in enterprise and government markets to even more effectively give customers
what they want — one team to provide comprehensive, integrated solutions that
will help generate growth and drive business innovation.

Recently, BT announced the creation of BT Advice to
strengthen its managed services and consultancy businesses.
