AT&T has unveiled current company president Dave Dorman as its new chief executive officer. Dorman will take control of AT&T after the sale of its cable division to Comcast is completed later this year. Current CEO C. Michael Armstrong is to take control of the new company formed by the sale of the cable division. The new company is expected to be called AT&T Comcast.
Dave Dorman has been president of AT&T since December 2000. His responsibilities included the management of the company’s business and consumer networks and long distance service units. These operations will represent AT&T’s core business activities after the cable division is sold.
Dorman began his career at Sprint in 1981. He later worked for Pacific Bell, PointCast and Concert before he joined AT&T in 2000.
