Sprint has nabbed yet another executive from a competitor as part of its restructuring, this time claiming former AT&T employee Nelly Pitocco as its new vice president of Enterprise Sales.
According to a Tuesday release from Sprint, Pitocco will be responsible for business-to-business sales and business development as well as supporting enterprise customers with wireless communication solutions and devices. Pitocco will report to Kevin Crull, president of Sprint’s new Central Area.
The appointment comes as part of Sprint’s hiring spree to fill leadership positions in its new corporate structure. The carrier’s revamped setup includes four regional offices – Northeast, South, Central and West – serving 19 major markets. The Central Area covers the carrier’s operations in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, West Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
Before joining Sprint, Pitocco held executive and management positions at Apollo Education Group, IBM and Advantis.
Pitocco also spent more than 15 years at AT&T, starting as a Technical Solutions Manager in 1999. Pitocco subsequently advanced through the ranks at AT&T to serve as a Client Solutions Chief, Technical Sales Director and Sales Center Vice President. Pitocco left AT&T in November 2014 to take up a position as Chief Sales Officer at Apollo.
Pitocco’s appointment comes about two months after Sprint announced the hiring of two former regional Verizon executives.
Verizon’s former New York metro and Florida regional presidents Pat Devlin and Mariano Legaz in April joined Sprint as president of the Northeast Area and chief procurement officer, respectively.
