I am a proud wife, mother, colleague and CEO of Verizon Business, a global leader in 5G technology serving 97% of Fortune 500 companies. Every day, we help businesses, governments and communities reimagine their employee, supply chain and end-customer experiences. And there’s never been a more critical time for mobility, broadband and cloud products and services, and for creating the 21st century infrastructure that will shape our future.
▶ Paving the Way for a New Era of Tech Innovation
As 5G continues to scale, there is a tremendous opportunity before us all. 5G is not another tech innovation. It’s a transformative platform that makes other innovations possible. And at Verizon Business, we are paving the way for this new era of technology-led disruption for our four key stakeholders – customers, shareholders, employees and society at large.
▶ Underpinning Our Focus with a Customer-Centric Ethos
Throughout my career, I’ve always put people, hard-work, growth and accountability first. My ethos began to take shape when I took my first full-time job as a customer service representative. Today, I’m privileged to lead an incredible team of more than 26,000 dedicated employees who put our customers at the center of everything we do.
Our core values of integrity, respect, accountability, performance excellence, and social responsibility guide our actions. We understand the impact we have on real people’s lives and the importance of responsible business through our Citizen Verizon program.
▶ Championing Engagement + Development Programs
Personally, I have a long history of championing engagement and development programs that help women and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs) grow their skills and networks to prepare for leadership roles.
I’m the proud advisor of Verizon’s Veterans employee resource group that provides programs and resources to our more than 10,0000 veterans, active reservists and military families, and carry a passion for STEAM education.
▶ Serving on Boards of Directors
I’m also proud to serve on the John Deere Board of Directors, Paley Media Center Board of Trustees and the Verizon Foundation board.
