AT&T names new vice president and general manager in Virginia
AT&T announced a change Thursday in a top executive position in Virginia. The company said Chris Sambar will oversee operations in the state and West Virginia. Sambar will head sales and operations for more than 500 employees, 47 AT&T-owned retail locations and more than 264 national retail partners and authorized resellers across both states.
“Chris brings tremendous talent to the table, with experience in nearly every aspect of the business, from network operations to retail management,” Steve Hodges, regional president, AT&T Northeast, said in a statement.
Before being named to his new position, Sambar served as executive director of the company’s Retail Learning Services where he was responsible for designing and delivering all customer experience, sales and product training curriculum to AT&T’s 33,000 retail employees. He first joined AT&T when it was SBC Communications in 2002, and he has held multiple sales positions.
Sambar will be based out of AT&T’s Richmond headquarters.
