For the past two years, Donovan has led AT&T’s largest business unit, AT&T Communications, a global telecom leader serving 100 million mobile, broadband and pay-TV customers in the United States, and millions of business customers, including nearly all of the Fortune 1000.
Donovan joined AT&T in 2008 as chief technology officer, overseeing the company’s global technology direction and innovation road map. He was then promoted to AT&T’s chief strategy officer and group president for AT&T Technology and Operations, before being named CEO of AT&T Communications in July 2017.
AT&T will name a replacement for Donovan soon.
