CenturyLink reorganizes business sales and operations teams

CenturyLink, Inc., a provider of communications services, has announced that it is combining its network services business sales and operations teams into one organization, reporting to COO Karen Puckett.

The reorganization combines business sales and operations functions that currently reside in the company's Enterprise Markets Group - Network Services and Regional Markets Group organizations. The company's Wholesale Markets Group (WMG) and Enterprise Markets Group - Data Hosting segments are not impacted by the organizational realignment.

Beginning with the first quarter of 2013, the company will report the following four segments in its financial statements: Consumer, Business, Wholesale and Data Hosting services, the company said.

"Our business segment continues to grow, and this organizational shift streamlines our end-to-end service delivery, support and sales to our network services enterprise customers by creating one cohesive organization focused on them," said CenturyLink CEO and president Glen Post, III.
