CenturyLink Realigns Operating Structure; Jim Ousley to Lead Federal Group

CenturyLink Inc. (NYSE: CTL) will consolidate its government and business customer segments into two organizations as it realigns its operating structure, the company announced Thursday.

As of April 1, a new enterprise markets group led by group president Jim Ousley will serve the company’s federal government customers and customers of its cloud computing business Savvis, which it picked up in June 2011.

Ousley will simultaneously serve as CEO of Savvis, which also provides managed hosting and colocation services.

Starting on that date, CenturyLink’s regional markets group will serve local and state governments and all business customers in local company operating regions, according to the release.

Karen Puckett, chief operating officer and executive vice president, will continue to lead this group.

CenturyLink President and CEO Glen Post said the new organizations will offer voice, broadband and information technology services.

Bill Cheek will continue serving as president of the wholesale markets group, which will remain in its current form.
