Lori Lee, who leads AT&T Home Solutions, was named by Fortune Magazine as one of 2014’s 50 Most Powerful Women in Business. AT&T Home Solutions provides U-verse high speed Internet, TV and VOIP, in addition to traditional telephone service and advanced advertising. AT&T Home Solutions is responsible for nearly $23 Billion in annual revenue.
Under Lee’s direction, total U-verse revenues grew 25% in the second quarter this year and U-verse is the fastest growing product at AT&T. Where available, U-verse subscribers are more satisfied overall when compared to cable’s video and Internet subscribers. U-verse recently received three Women’s Choice Awards® as “America’s Most Recommended Brand among women for Broadband, Television and Phone Service.” And AT&T U-verse TV was named 2013 Video Company of the Year by Frost & Sullivan.
“This is an honor that really speaks to the strength of AT&T,” Lee said. “We’re passionate about connecting people with each other, information and entertainment at home, work or on the go. And we’re doing it with a customer experience that stands apart from others. The real power of AT&T is in our diversity, great opportunities and a shared commitment to deliver the future first. More than 83,000 women working at AT&T are leading innovation and technology, and transforming how we connect with our world.”
The Most Powerful Women in Business list is compiled by Fortune editors who consider four criteria: the size and importance of the woman’s business in the global economy, the health and direction of the business, the arc of the woman’s career and social and cultural influence.
