Sprint brings new presidents to boost regional structure

Sprint broadband
Telecom network operator Sprint today announced new presidents for Kansas and Missouri, North Carolina and South Carolina, and the Central Texas regions.

The appointment follows Sprint’s earlier announcement that it will restructure the wireless company into four geographic areas – West, Central, Northeast and South – with targeted resources devoted to 19 top markets. Sprint is owned by Japanese telecom major SoftBank.

All the new presidents will be responsible for sales strategy for local markets, network oversight, customer service, marketing communications and general operations supporting the full portfolio of Sprint products and services from enterprise to consumer.

The strategy behind the forming of new regional structure is aimed at delivering better customer experience and positioning the company for long-term success. Sprint has more than 58.6 million connections as of September 30, 2015. Sprint is struggling in the U.S. telecom market to add wireless subscribers competing with AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile.

Tim Donahue will remain in his current position as vice president, consumer and general business Web, telesales and field marketing for Sprint until the new regional structure is completely rolled out next year.

Marcelo Claure, CEO of Sprint, is looking for a dominating wireless market share in Kansas City, the hometown of Sprint. Sprint has more than 533 company-owned or Sprint-branded retail stores in Kansas City.
