According to the releases, Karen Paletta will take over leadership of the New York City, New Jersey, Central Pennsylvania and Delaware Region. Paletta, who previously Sprint’s regional vice president for consumer sales in the Northeast, is responsible for the region’s sales strategy, network oversight, customer service, marketing communications and general operations.
Under the new structure, Paletta’s domain is part of Sprint’s Northeast geographic region, which will cover Delaware, Eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland, New England, New Jersey, New York, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
Sprint also announced the appointment of Greg Post as president of the Mountain and Southwest region. Based in Denver, Post is also responsible for sales strategy, network oversight, customer service, marketing communications and general operations.
Post will function in Sprint’s new West geographic area, which will encompass Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, western Texas and Wyoming.
Before joining Sprint, Post served as president of North America for Recipero, a company that specializes in device-led data solutions. Post has also held leadership positions at T-Mobile, Cricket Wireless, Nextel and AT&T Wireless.
The carrier also appointed industry veteran Conrad Hunter as president of the Northeast area’s New England region and Glen Flowers as president of the Central area’s Michigan, Kentucky and Indiana region.
In November, Sprint revealed that its restructuring efforts would result in a “decentralized” company model with four regional offices. The new regions will include the Northeast, West, South and Central geographic areas.
Though Sprint has acknowledged that the changes will result in job losses, the company has not released any figures for the number of employees who will be terminated.
