Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell C. McAdam, Navy Veteran, Gets A Key PromotionTuesday, September 28th, 2010
It seems to have become peak season on the newswires for those who are linked by military service. I was pleased to see that Lowell C. McAdam, a Veterans Advantage TopVet Award recipient last summer, was promoted from CEO of Verizon Wireless to President and COO of the corporate parent, Verizon Communications Inc.
“The Board’s selection of Lowell to this key, central position underscores its commitment to reward success while working with me to prepare our company for an executive transition in the future,” Verizon CEO – and fellow Veteran – Ivan Seidenberg said in a news release.
Elsewhere, in sports, soon-to-be football Hall of Fame Quarterback Kurt Warner, linked to our military thanks to his Marine Corps wife, is hoofing it on Dancing with the Stars, and turning quite a few heads.
Finally, a friend was excited to pass along an email that he received from the International Space Station (ISS) 200 miles above the earth. His friend and West Point graduate Douglas H. Wheelock, assumed command of the ISS last week, and became the first Active Duty Army Astronaut to do so. Congrats Wheels!
