There has been a lot of moving around since AT&T reorganized its public sector and education lines of business into a single Global Public Sector organization. Today, the company announced two more executive moves: Rob Dapkiewicz will replace Mike Leff as vice president – federal civilian, as Leff transitions to vice president – strategy and operations of AT&T Global Public Sector.
The move comes as the government is demanding more solutions already commercially available.
“Government customers want more commercial offers,” said Kay Kapoor, president of AT&T Global Public Sector. “Rob’s success in our commercial business makes him the perfect fit for this job.”
Dapkiewicz has been with AT&T for more than 25 years, and has led work with commercial customers and large alliance partners. He also has experience with product development, regulatory affairs and operations—all of which will come in handy as the government undergoes its digital transformation.
“Mike’s done a great job building our federal civilian business,” Kapoor said. AT&T Global Public Sector serves government and education customers at the federal, state, local and international level. Sales totaled $14.8 billion in 2016. “He can help improve business and relationships across our entire customer base [in his new role],” Kapoor added.
