Jeff has 25 years of experience with AT&T in a variety of strategic, operational and technology leadership roles. Most of his career has been in our Mobility business — the biggest single driver of AT&T’s consolidated revenues.

Before being named to lead AT&T Communications, Jeff was president of AT&T Communications’ Technology and Operations group where he led a team of more than 90,000 employees and was responsible for the company’s network, technology, cybersecurity, data and labs operations. In that role, he led the team that won AT&T recognition for having the best, fastest and most reliable wireless network in the country.

Prior to that, he served as: CEO of AT&T’s Vrio and its DIRECTV Latin America and SKY Brasil businesses from 2015 to 2018; senior vice president in AT&T’s Strategy and Corporate Development group; and president of AT&T Mexico and a member of the board of directors and executive committee of Telmex and América Móvil, overseeing AT&T’s since-divested minority interest in the two companies. Early in his career, he held several operational positions with AT&T’s (BellSouth International) wireless businesses in Latin America.

Jeff holds a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from the University of Florida and a Master of Business Administration from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.
