Kay Kapoor to Lead Nearly $15 Billion Global Public Sector Organization
AT&T has created a new Global Public Sector organization and named AT&T executive Kay Kapoor to lead it.
AT&T’s Public Sector sales in 2016 totaled nearly $15 billion.* The organization provides advanced information and communications technologies to government and education customers across federal, state, local and international public sector markets.
Kapoor, who has led AT&T’s federal business for four years, will be president of the new group.
“This is an important focus area for AT&T,” said Kapoor. “Our public sector and education customers are a top priority. By bringing all public sector teams together, we can improve the value and partnership we offer to these customers.”
Kapoor led AT&T’s public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), which was announced March 30. The Department of Commerce and FirstNet selected AT&T to build and manage the first broadband network dedicated to America’s police, firefighters, EMS and other first responders.
